Sparticl Created by Twin Cities Public Television and sponsored by 3M, Sparticl combs through the science on the Web, presenting age-appropriate and valuable websites on everything from “albinism” to “zoonotic diseases,” from vetted and respected sources that include PBS, Discovery, NOVA, and the BBC. The interface screams user-friendly. The layout is clean, and though the homepage features vibrant colors and attractive icons, even the most easily distracted student will be able to navigate this one with ease.
