Whyville is a virtual world where children ages 8 to 15 play, explore, create and learn together. From solving math puzzles to protecting coral reefs, from programming robots to running virtual businesses, Whyville's citizens, known as Whyvillians, collaborate, compete and share while engaging in 100+ games and activities. Whyville has a currency (clams!), an economy, a newspaper (The Whyville Times) and even a Senate. The richness of the virtual world fosters creativity, initiative, critical thinking and entrepreneurial spirit, all within a safe, monitored environment.
