The EPA's Explorers' Club is a site designed for children, ages 5 - 12, seeking information about the state of the global environment. The site contains scientific information about water and air quality and ways to protect these natural resources from unnecessary contaminants. There are interactive art projects, games, stories, and experiments designed to help young students understand how humans ... impact the environment.
Much of the site is dedicated to providing simple ways individuals can help protect the environment. Such topics as garbage reduction, recycling, superfund sites, and habitat loss are introduced in various sections of the website. Interactive stories give students real world examples of how pollution hazards can be avoided. Users can also make suggestions on how to improve the site or ask an environmental question in the "Ask EPA" section. Questions are typically answered via email in 15 days. The "Students and Educators" link contains additional EPA educational sites primarily designed for upper elementary and high school students and educators.
