Science Pickle (sciencepickle.com) provides connectable and diverse activities that allow learners to pick their path through the curricula.  The goal is to support people's exploration of their questions while creating a variety of experiences of engagement. The website is for high school students and older, but many of the activities may be used with middle schoolers.  Bring your laptop or tablet to explore four types of software activities: simulations, tools, practice problems, and learning games that are either web apps or desktop apps. The topics range from questioning, observing, learning, and Earth systems. The website is a year old and is a work in progress, so suggestions, feedback, and collaborations welcome!
