Kinetic City Super Crew may sound like a group of super heroes, but they're actually super sleuths. Tia, Fernando, P.J., Max, Emerson, Megan, Curtis and Keisha are a team of eight young people who solve fun science mysteries.
Kinetic City was originally a radio show broadcast in most major cities in the U.S. Now that it's been expanded to include a website, Kinetic City is available to anyone and everyone on the Web.
Each week the crew tries to solve a new science mystery on the radio. At the same time, the mystery is broadcast via Real Audio on the Web. While the fun part of the site is listening to the crew at work, there are text versions of the show for those without sound capabilities. There's also a rich archive of past shows.
The Home Crew Hands-On section offers young people a chance to practice fun science projects on their own. The experiments are usually fun things like creating a lie detector tester out of a coffee pot and a marble, or making a human sundial. There's also an introduction to the super crew, a preview of upcoming shows and a Tune In section for radio air times and dates.
Whether you're a science enthusiast or a Sherlock Holmes wannabe, Kinetic City Super Crew is a website worth checking out.
