Teaching Experience

Formal teaching experience is not required, especially in light of the fact that the FunWorks is designed for young people to use without facilitation.

Planning and Preparation

In addition to exploring the Web site and all the different features for themselves, educators can visit a dedicated teachers and instructors section with links to lesson plans and activities, career counseling, and other resources. This includes a private educators' site which allows individuals to access the full resource records and annotate or recommend them to others.


  • Software: Flash plugin (for optimal user experience)
  • Computers: Computer with Internet access


The FunWorks is a free resource. No registration is required, unless users choose to join the private educators site.
