With the amount of fun packed into QUESTACON, there's almost no need to trek down under to visit the actual center. The site offers detailed information -- presented in a conversational tone -- about the center's exhibits and topics. However, the Questacon site isn't just a bunch of articles. Kids will find plenty of activities to do when they're viewing the site and plenty to do later, including easy-to-follow instructions for scientific experiments they can perform at home, like creating a bobbing clown toy to learn how a low center of gravity works. Some are illustrated with short videos. The site also features a number of simple games and some stuff that's sure to pique kids' interest about science, like galaxy photos taken via telescope and information on natural disasters.

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.
