About ThinkQuest

Each year, ThinkQuest (www.thinkquest.org), an educational initiative committed to advancing learning through the use of computer and networking technology, sponsors an International competition in website design for kids ages 12 through 19. They also sponsor ThinkQuest Junior for elementary school students in grades four through six. The contestants are challenged to work in small teams to create their own fun, interesting and educational websites on a variety of different subjects. Each year, $250,000 in cash and awards are given to the winning teams, teachers and schools of the ThinkQuest Junior competition.

The purpose of the contest is to inspire kids to learn about and become interested in technology and computers, in a way that is both fun and challenging. (They call this “Internet Style” learning.) This type of learning requires that kids learn how to use the power of the Internet as a valuable tool for gathering information and working together. The amazing websites listed below represent the hard work of teams of kids and their adult coaches. You won’t believe your eyes when you see what these smart, industrious kids came up with!
