Brainpop - web site for educational animated movies

One thing I like to explore is variety of educational web sites to learn different subjects such as science, geology, history and religion. I use them to teach young children wo come to my desk to get research help.

BrainPOP produces educational animated movies for school children to explain concepts in a voice and visual style that is accessible and entertaining to both children and adults. Each day 3 million students watch BrainPOP movies and exchange messages with a dynamic cast of five characters who lead users through related activities on the web site - interactive quizzes and games, comic strips and experiments.

BrainPOP has won multiple education and media awards including; The Flash Film Festival, District Administration Curriculum Award, Forbes Best of the Web.
