howtosmile is a collection of the best educational materials on the web, in addition to learning tools and services, all designed especially for those who teach school-aged kids in non-classroom settings. It was launched in 2010 by a group of science museums – Lawrence Hall of Science, the Exploratorium, the Science Museum of Minnesota, the Children’s Museum of Houston, and the New York Hall of Science – dedicated to bringing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) out of the academic cloister and into the wider world.
