Like last year, I’m again a jury member for the dutch version of ThinkQuest. Thinkquest is a competition for youngsters who create together with coaches(school teacher, parents, etc) educational websites. Here’s a short description from the international ThinkQuest website:
ThinkQuest inspires students to think, connect, create, and share. Students work in teams to build innovative and educational websites to share with the world. Along the way, they learn research, writing, teamwork, and technology skills and compete for exciting prizes.
My point of interest will be the technical aspect of the websites. I’m participating in ThinkQuest Junior(Dutch link), the competition for primary schools.
Don’t think this is a competition for softies. When you take a look at last years winners website, you’ll see definitelly some extremely good content and some rich internet aspects.
I hardly couldn’t believe someone at the age of 10 to 12 is able to make such as thing!
