I have been searching for useful resources to share with them containing both serious science and high-level Torah in a format that is easily accessible for our students. Although there is a dearth of websites meeting these criteria, I have found a few which appear below.
- http://aviezer.org/ This visually appealing website by Professor Nathan Aviezer contains an entertaining cartoon video series geared towards high school students. It is accompanied by a teaching unit which can be acquired by contacting Professor Aviezer. I have not been able to preview the teaching unit yet but the videos are worth a look.
- http://geraldschroeder.com/ This site contains a number of articles with detailed point-by-point analysis of various scientific issues which might be construed as contradicting with Torah including The Big Bang, The Age of the Universe, and Evolution. It also dispels many common myths including problems with the flood and the accuracy scientific dating method and the Big Bang Theory and the existence of G-d.
- http://www.simpletoremember.com/ This site which contains many great articles on hashkafa has a section devoted to Science and Judaism.
- Finally, to expose our students to a contrary approach that still takes science seriously, you might want to look at http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/435073/jewish/Torah-Science.htm.
