Highlights for High School features MIT OpenCourseWare materials that are most useful for high school students and teachers. The program’s goal for teachers is to make it easy for them to find resources they can use to inspire their students.

http://biobuilder.org
This site, Biobuilders, provides activities and animations for teaching and learning synthetic biology.

http://web.mit.edu/star/
The STAR program at MIT seeks to bridge the divide between scientific research and the classroom. Understanding and applying research methods in the classroom setting can be challenging due to time constraints and the need for advanced equipment and facilities. The multidisciplinary STAR team collaborates with faculty from MIT and other educational institutions to design software exploring core scientific research concepts. The goal of STAR is to develop innovative and intuitive teaching tools for classroom use.

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity.

http://Scratch.mit.edu
Scratch is a new programming language created at MIT that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web. Scratch is designed to help young people (ages 8 and up) develop 21st century learning skills. As they create and share Scratch projects, young people learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

http://olw.mit.edu/
The mission of MIT OpenLabWare is to provide online materials that enhance understanding of the research process, excite students about research at MIT and promote MIT as a creative thinking institution.

This site provides a list of seven laboratory protocols that have been specifically designed by MIT scientists and high school science teachers for use in high school and middle school biology classes.

http://web.mit.edu/Star/biochem/
StarBiochem is a protein 3-Dviewer that allows students to learn key concepts about the biology of proteins in an interactive manner.

http://web.mit.edu/star/genetics/
StarGenetics is a genetic cross simulator. It aims to simulate real genetics experiments to teach students about genetic experimental design. StarGenetics allows students to simulate mating experiments between organisms that are genetically different across a range of traits to analyze the nature of the traits in question.
