This stuff will definitely be helpful to them in the rest of the life.
Nowadays as Internet is one of the affordable, available and noteworthy resource to learn some stuff. We decided to provide you reviews for some good websites which you can suggest to kids (and elders too, remember there is a kid in everyone of us 🙂 ).

It provides you the following sections:

Following are the sections to explore:
- Alice (Play and learn)
- LHC (Discover the knowledge)
- Atlas (Play and learn)
- LHC and MoEDAL

Here you will get information like: CMS is particle detector made of many different layers, located deep inside the LHC, at one of the four LHC collision points. The CMS detector weights an impressive 12,500 tons – more that the entire Effiel tower! Of course, there is lot more to know.
Then there is the Multimedia section where you can get

That is not all! you can have SuperBob, whom you can challenge in the tour to the accelerator. Know more about power of Ten. And yes there is a MicroBoy there too. All will give you chance to have fun.
Overall a nice site for kids to visit. It is a combination of Multimedia elements and knowledge. However the fonts sometimes are not clearly readable (for titles). And yes, don’t forget to have Flash Player plugin installed in your web browser.
