Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A perfect place to study, participate in researches, and even ask questions and get professional answers.

As for me, this is the best place to study and have fun (I am a B.Sc. student, but I am volunteering there since I was in high school). Most of the projects' staff are professors from known universities, and curators are very experienced scientists. As for me, everyone there seems to be glad to answer any questions. There are places to ask questions on specific research, but there are also conversation forums, where you and your kids can ask anything, from "Why do the birds fly?" to topics in quantum physics. But, I still strongly recommend to tell about your educational background to prevent academic level answers to a third grade student, as there is privacy in the accounts (The one,who gives the answer does not know if you are an adult, or a kid). Also, I never saw any insults or humiliation. There is a full respect. More than that, this is a place, where professors talk to you "on the level of your eyes". And of cause, there you also must respect others, the same as they respect you. So, no swearing allowed there. Strongly recommending to both kids, and adults.
