This is forwarded from the Scout Report. More info on Scout Report at the end.

"CyberFair 96: Share & Unite" will be showcased as part of the Internet
1996 World Exposition, modeled after the great world's fairs at the turn
of the 20th century. This is an international, project-based, Internet
learning activity that is open to all schools (grade levels K-12) in all
countries. International CyberFair participants will create curricular
content for use by students around the world by showcasing their local
communities via the World Wide Web. Participating schools will be asked to
conduct a research project involving community resources and to publish
their project on a Web site. In addition to the incredible learning
experience, every school that participates will receive a "thank you for
playing" prize donated by businesses who believe the Internet can
positively impact education. Complete information on CyberFair 96 is
available at the Web site.

Sundance is the official site of Robert Redford's project to develop new
talent and support independent filmmakers. The site has a direct link to
the Sundance Film Festival, which features a daily report, a section on
this year's films, getting around, information on past festivals, and a
message from Mr. Redford. Sundance also has a filmmaker focus, presently
featuring Atom Egoyan, and a connection to the Sundance Channel, with
information about a new 24 hour, commercial free film TV channel. The site
is richly graphical, so if you have a slow connection go directly to the
Film Festival address which offers the same content.

One of the top sites on the Web just got better. "Welcome to the White
House", the official Web site of the Executive Branch, has been completely
redesigned and upgraded to incorporate new features. The site offers
interesting content for everyone, including children, students, and
adults. . . . A section devoted to White House History and
Tours offers biographical sketches, inaugural addresses, and portraits of
all the presidents, and even more interesting, all the first ladies. "Art
in the White House - A Nation's Pride" displays the tremendously rich
collection of American arts and crafts on display in the White House, and
tours of the Old Executive Office Building and the First Lady's sculpture
garden, which most Americans never get to see, are included. Socks leads
a tour of The White House for Kids section, including a bit of history
about the children and pets who have lived there, and "Inside the White
House", a quarterly newsletter just for kids. The entire site is
graphically rich, and what's really handy is that it senses what kind of
Web browser you are using and automatically displays the version that is
compatible with your browser. And all information is easily accessable to
those with slower connections through the "Text version" link on every
page. http://www.whitehouse.gov

I enjoy this resource which is a moderately long email message once a week.
Many arts related sites are often included as well as other areas that I
might use in other ways.
