"Eduweb was able to help us answer the question of how to make George Washington a real person and not just the face on the quarter. By creating games that really immerse the player in Washington's life at Mount Vernon, at Yorktown, and even on the dance floor, children will learn that Washington lived an exciting life. And the experience of working with eduweb was a pleasure from day one."

"Our challenge was to create activities that could help young children understand and practice complex concepts like synthesizing or evaluating - and have fun at the same time. Eduweb was quick to grasp the gist of what we wanted to teach, and then managed to turn our educators' vision into something delightful to look at and fun to use. As they guided us through the development process, they continually looked for solutions that would engage students in more meaningful ways. We are well satisfied with both the developoment process and the final product."

PestWorld for Kids
National Pest Management Association

What are pests? Think of them as animals out of place. Out in nature, they're just doing their jobs. But when they move into our homes and yards, that's when we call them pests.

Collaborating with the NPMA and its public relations agency, FCF Schmidt, eduweb developed a diverse array of offerings to meet many user needs and interests: amazing facts, in-depth information, interactive games, and curricular lesson plans that get you up close and personal with these bizarre yet all-too-familiar critters. You'll never look at an ant or cockroach in the same way again.

DuPage Children's Museum
Naperville, Illinois

The DuPage Children's Museum was taking their popular in-school design program to the Web—but how? Technical challenges abounded, from school-age computers to district firewalls. But after extensive development and formative testing, we had an innovative and award-winning site. At school or home, kids tackle design challenges with the help of a real engineer, who consults with each kid live, via an interactive whiteboard and chat room. Empowering for kids (and engineers), this program is available at no cost for schools and homeschoolers.
