Kidipede

Kidipede is a kids’ encyclopedia, online since 1996. A lot of kids use Kidipede for homeschooling. You can find out about Ancient Greece, or how to make yogurt, or about why fires need air to burn. Kidipede will tell you who invented algebra, and what happens in the Iliad, and what Confucius said.

Kidipede – History for Kids began in 1995 as a community service learning project for sophomores at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. Since 2000, however, it has been entirely privately owned, organized and run by Karen Carr. Dr. Carr holds a PhD in Classical Art and Archaeology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and is an associate professor of History at Portland State University. She has been steadily expanding Kidipede from a focus on World History to include Science, Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Physics, Math and more!
