New Games on PBSkids ZOOM Web Site Explore Newton’s Laws of Motion
.
http://pbskids.org/zoom/games/3puckchuck/
The ZOOM Web site has added two new games just in time for summer! “3 Puck Chuck,” found in the Games section, is a new multi-player, multi-level Flash game of collision and decision.  It allows players to test their puck-chucking skills by chucking, whacking, and smacking their way through seven levels—either solo, or with a friend. “3 Ball Football,” transfers play from the virtual world to the physical. Both games explore the application of Newton’s Laws of Motion and promise a whack-smacking good time!

The ZOOM Web site has added two new games just in time for summer! “3 Puck Chuck,” found in the Games section, is a new multi-player, multi-level Flash game of collision and decision.  It allows players to test their puck-chucking skills by chucking, whacking, and smacking their way through seven levels—either solo, or with a friend. “3 Ball Football,” listed under Sports Games in the ZOOMgames area of Activities from the Show, transfers play from the virtual world to the physical. Both games explore the application of Newton’s Laws of Motion and promise a whack-smacking good time! 

Players earn points by knocking the goal puck into a target and opponent’s game pucks into traps. Obstacles and varying surfaces cause players to account for Newton’s Laws of Motion as they make the necessary adjustments to speed, direction, and physical properties. A practice area introduces and isolates the science concepts behind Newton’s Laws of Motion, explains how the game is played, and offers the opportunity to practice techniques and experiment with different variables used in game play. 

By kids, for kids, ZOOM is a daily, interactive television series and state-of-the-art Web site that challenges five- to eleven-year-olds to “turn off the TV and do it!” Each half-hour program features a cast of seven everyday kids playing games, performing plays, tackling science experiments, telling stories, reading poetry, solving brainteasers, whipping up recipes, and having a good time, as they bring to life ideas sent in by viewers from across the country.   Kids can also interact with ZOOM via the Web at pbskids.org/zoom, at ZOOMzone museum exhibits, and at ClubZOOM after-school programs nationwide.

WGBH Boston is America's preeminent public broadcasting producer, the source of nearly one-third of PBS's primetime lineup as well as the award-winning children's series Arthur, Between the Lions, and ZOOM. Under the leadership of vice president Brigid Sullivan, the WGBH children's lineup leads the field in educational multimedia (including the Web, broadband, and interactive television) and in technologies and services that make media accessible for people with disabilities. WGBH's current children's series have been recognized with some of the world's most prestigious awards, including 11 Emmys, the George Foster Peabody award, three Prix Jeunesse awards, a BAFTA, and more than half a dozen Parents' Choice awards.  For more information, visit www.wgbh.org.

The URLwire Effect:
"URLwire is without question the most effective way to tell the right people in the online world about your web site" 
-- CoolShopping.com

My experience with URLWire has been entirely positive.
I received coverage (and links!) from key sites and in e-newsletters, one of which had over 500,000 readers. Resulting traffic has been more than impressive. URLwire
demonstrated to me that it's the prime choice for announcing a web site. Edwin Hayward
