Description:

Whyville is the only learning-based virtual world for boys and girls. Most of Whyville’s users are between the ages of 8 and 15. Whyville was created by educators and scientists from Cal Tech and is the safest virtual world site on the Internet, far exceeding the standards established by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The community has its own economy, newspaper, e-mail and chatting system, and interactive games. Whyvillians create their own unique identity, navigate through the community, chat with other users, and engage in activities to raise their salary. Above all, they learn.
