ACCESS AMERICA

When most kids hear the word government, they think of politics, taxes or laws of the land. But at Access America, you'll find out what the government's really about: helping people like you! Make your way to Washington at http://www.students.gov/ and get the lowdown on the federal programs aimed at kids. Whether you're planning your education or want advice on a cool career, the site is a great resource for young people just starting out. Learn how to reserve a campsite in the U.S, or get a passport to travel overseas. Access America is a gateway to everything your country has to offer.

WATER WORLD

From thriving underworlds of living creatures to scary storms above the surface, the Earth's oceans are places of mystery and beauty. At Savage Seas, you'll explore this exciting waterscape, including the stories behind shipwrecks, icebergs, freak waves and monsters of the sea. Prepare for an adventure at http://www.pbs. org/wnet/savageseas/ Paddle by the Crow's Nest, where you can create animated waves, or watch video clips from the "Black Dragon," a powerful tidal bore in China. Walk along the Captain's Bridge for information on how to survive a storm on the high seas, and the ongoing saga of the "Devil's Triangle." Do you love a rainy day? Then check into the Weather Factory for the scoop on El Nino, thunderstorms and ocean images from a satellite. Or journey to the ocean's floor with the Deep Sea Simulator and swim with giant squid and "black smokers." It's a voyage you won't soon forget.
