Rosen's elementary-level PowerKnowledge Science suite just received a rave review from NSTA--National Science Teachers Association: "PowerKnowledge Science offers more useful and kid-friendly information than other sites on the Internet. I've never experienced a site with more support or ease of operation. This site helped my students gather, describe, and apply information in their understanding of the natural and designed world in which they live."
