    DIY.org, in my opinion, is one of the VERY best websites available for upper elementary students and above. It is an amazing resource for Genius Hour or clubs like my middle school Technology Club. Additionally, they have a NEW website called Jam that offers online courses for kids! You can follow them on Twitter here. (Credits for image go to DIY.org)

    Pinterest Boards: These are compilations of resources from all over that I have gathered over time for my students. I am not affiliated with these links.
