Abstract: This World Wide Web site features the comic strip characters Beakman and Jax. They provide answers to science related questions that kids send in. The 50 Terrific Questions section includes an answer to those questions and then provides information, drawings, and diagrams to illustrate the answer. The You Can activity section provides information on experiments or recipes that can be done to further illustrate the answer. The site provides a schedule of when comics that highlight specific answers will be printed in Sunday comic sections (because the newspapers have premier rights look here after the date for the online version). Photographs of planets and stars and answers to some bodily function questions, like why do feet stink and what is snot, are provided. A research project enlists kids to help confirm the range of the lightning bug. Links are provided to other World Wide Web places including Beakman's World. (Author/DEB)
