For more example of accessible STEM content, head over to
http://www.access2science.com
There is a collection of links to accessible STEM content websites.
Mind you, I have found that some of them do not work as expected, for

This could be due to the fact I have a beta version of MathPlayer 3
and IE9, and there are some transitional issues that are being
resolved.
Thanks
