  • A Virtual Educational Theme Park With Thrilling Adventures For Kids | Wonder Rotunda

    Just got an email from this:

    “The Wonder Rotunda launched this month. You might call it a ‘virtual world's fair!'
    This site is a virtual educational theme park designed to get kids thinking
    about the planet, what they're interested in and passionate about.

    On Wonder Rotunda, kids can do everything from zipline through a tropical
    rainforest, steer a submarine through the human digestive system, dive the Great
    Barrier Reef or operate a smoothie stand! Jam packed with 13 ‘game shows,' there
    is never a dull moment – yet they are learning and exploring every step of the

    And it features NO ads or social chat rooms. All fun and educational.
    Created by a D.C. dad who was inspired by the 1964-65 N.Y. World's Fair and
    wanted to recreate that experience in a new, fun online experience.
    A one year pass to Wonder Rotunda is $45!”

    I think we'll continue to see more of this sort of site – at least I hope so. I do like the video on the homepage.

    Virtual field trips and videos are on this website which guarantees that videos are “kid friendly educational videos.” May be worth using if youtube is blocked.
