ISS Wave http://isswave.org

·         Heavensabove website: give your location and it will tell you where to look to see the ISS in the night sky

I’m a Scientist http://imascientist.org.uk

·         See Stacy Baker’s Presentation

·         Students appear to get invested in scientists, rooting for them the way we root for designers on Project Runway.

·         Student’s ask scientists any question they want.

·         How hard would it be to set this up with Joomla or Drupal?

·         Go to website and look at archive from last year: 6,400 students asking thousands of questions.

·         Kids get engaged because of the reversal of power, students get to ask the questions and students get to decide which scientists get to move on.

·         60% of students went on the site in their own time at home.

·         Scientists got into it, staying up late making videos

·         Scientists can come from anywhere, students are primarily from UK, but other schools can apply

·         Majority of scientists are academic

VIVO http://www.vivoweb.org

·         Semantic web platform to highlight scientists areas of expertise and interests.

·         120 people at 7 different institutions working on it.

·         So much information, vivo filters down to meaningful results

·         Harvests data from verified sources, uses RDF triples

·         For collaboration, finding resources in academia,

·         Did a search on biomedical informatics, got a list of potential collaborators

·         Profile with data from PubMed, coauthorship record

·         Each institution maintains their own data, allowing customization to the institution and what’s meaningful to the organization.

·         Open Source: see sourceforge
