Winners will be announced at a celebrity award ceremony at the Science Museum on October 6. Some shortlisted sites follow and the full list can be seen at:

Children at Shenley Primary School in Hertfordshire celebrate 100 years of flight with their Fantastic Flight website.


Japan's Bullet Train first took to the rails in 1964, and is the only train in the Railway Museum that wasn't built in the UK. It clocked up an amazing 6,367,194 miles during its working days and travelled the 320 miles from Tokyo to Osaka in just three hours. It's easy to see why it influenced Meadows Community School's Chris Witham's website, "The Power of Steam".

Interesting facts abound on the "Wonderful Weather Website" created by children at St Joseph's primary school in Exmouth. Frontpage.htm

Amberfield School, Suffolk's "Exploring Mars with the Science Museum" is a topical resource for the red planet.


Primary teachers are the intended audience for the "Forces" website created by King Alfred's College, Winchester. It looks at Physical Processes with links to Materials and their Properties. The college's other entry is "Exploring Materials at the Science Museum".
