Arlington, TX (Vocus) April 9, 2007
With summer vacation just around the corner and curious kids looking for fun ways to beat the heat, American Mensa -- the high IQ society -- announces its new Web site, MensaForKids.org. The site provides educational games and monthly features for kids; information and valuable resources for parents and teachers.
"MensaForKids.org is an exciting new adventure for the Mensa Education & Research Foundation and American Mensa," said Greg Timmers, Foundation president. "Mensa has always provided a welcoming and supportive environment for gifted kids and this is a way for us to reach out to all kids and show them the value of learning while still having a great time. We also think parents will really enjoy the Web site because it's packed with great information to help with the challenges and wonders of raising a gifted child."
Sponsored by the Mensa Education & Research Foundation and sporting a playground theme, MensaForKids.org is colorful, easy to navigate and fun to visit. The site is geared toward children ages 6-10 and contains online games and puzzles that will keep a child's brain busy. Kids will also enjoy the monthly features written by Mensa members with topics ranging from lasers to school work to humor.
