Thanks, Ralph. (Australian Council for Computers in Education)

Because ThinkQuest starts in August and ends in April each year
I, for one, am always really impressed with Aussie school winners!

And, all it takes for a team are school enrollments and a coach, and
with three categories, age 12 and under, 15 and under, and 19 and
under, a ThinkQuest activity on the net with friends over the holidays
could be heaven for many children. A useful, fun and safe net activity.
