Cybersleuth Kids is a search engine aimed at K-12 students. It was designed by a professional teacher and is maintained by a number of volunteers. The concept behind the search engine is to allow children to navigate the Internet in safety, and to be able to find the information that is most relevant to them.
The search engine is only able to access a database of carefully selected websites, chosen for their educational value. The search engine is therefore not seeking to compete with larger alternatives such as Google, and is purely for children wishing to find information that is directly useful for school work and other educational purposes. To do so, children are able to enter their school grade to find the information likely to be of the most use for them.
In addition to the website's search function, it also has a number of other features suitable for children of differing ages. These include images, videos, games, printables such as coloring pages and clip art. On the home page of the website are 18 categories, ranging from animations to web design, each with subcategories, such as school, sports and history and animated gifs and clip art, respectively. Some resources at the site, such as information on game consoles, are not necessarily educational in nature.
