Looking for Great Examples of Wikis Being Used in Science (MS or US/HS)

Hello. I will be co-teaching a workshop with teachers on the use of collaborative Web 2.0 tools in the science classroom and am looking for examples of wikis used for science. I have multiple examples of my own but would like to show a broader spectrum of work. I am focusing on wikis that show how students can collaborate to generate online lab reports, complete research, do peer review data analysis, etc.

Here is an example wiki from my own classroom of 7th graders (all have signed permission for public wiki use):

Any examples, thoughts, ideas? Thank you! - Joselyn

At our school, we have just started this wikispace, which will be used for the students' media journals and some other classroom work. I don't teach that class, so I'm not sure what else it will be used for. I run this diigo site for my Y13 physics class, to provide them with extra resources as they study for their exams.
Hey there, I just came across this post and wanted to share a wiki space that a couple of our science teachers uses daily. It is fun and very informative. Check it out. the first is 7th grade the 2nd is 8th grade and the last is 6th grade.

Good luck
I use a wiki in my middle school science class. Here is this year's wiki www.team8blue08.wikispaces.com and last year's wiki is www.team8blue.wikispaces.com We keep class notes together and lab groups mangage their own pages.
We have had good luck with this Online Science Fair Wiki. We are running it again starting sometime in November. We have students maintain their own pages. The history is essentially a "portfolio" of learning and the discussion tab becomes the place for discussion. We hope to take this much further this year.
