The online companion to the Ontario Science Center museum offers the SciZone Web site for kids that contains some interesting and unique learning materials. Visitors will find educational games such as mixing colors, a list of lab experiments that includes growing rock candy, a Where's the Science section that attempts to describe how science can be found in the weirdest places, and several other offerings. Another example of the games that can be played is called the Stroop effect. A list of colors is given, and you're asked to read the color of each word as fast as you can. The twist is that the words are colored a different color than the word actually is, making it much more difficult than you would think to complete. These types of fun activities are plentiful on this site, making it a great place for kids to explore.
