Student Resources

A note from Mr. Durant, Technology Teacher:

Many times, students ask me for web sites that can help them with their school work or suggest web sites they have found are helpful.  On this web page, I have compiled the best student web sites that I have found.   The problem is I am not a kid!  Here's where you, the student, can really help out.  If you find a web site or a group of web sites around a topic of interest please e-mail them to me, matt_durant@brookline.mec.edu, with a brief description of the site(s).  I will post these web sites on this page.
