Awesome site for kids to learn from and get an interest for space. This site
loads very quickly, so there is no down time for kids to get board.
Spent tons of time going through variouse subjects all with large graphics
and sound to help aid the learning.

Technical Remarks:

Iteractive from the start. Kids can watch an alien move or a plane fly by, along
with some sound bits. You can learn anything from astronauts living in space to
how their rockets and airplanes work to even being able to do projects and
games to be able to learn on your own.
Showes pictures of actual astronauts and all the rockets and space crafts
that nasa uses.
With a club that kids can join to learn more, with monthly emails of new things
going on with nasa to more projects and games for the kids to try.
First time users of this site need not to be intimidated.Everything is very
self explainitory. Different catagories all in different colors to help
seperate them.
