The article reviews the American Museum of Natural History's website, Ology. Kids can pick up a virtual trowel at Ology, the American Museum of Natural History's award-winning website (ology.amnh.org) and learn what it is like to be an archaeologist. They can also explore other scientific arenas. Clicking on one of the eight "Ologies"--including Astronomy and Paleontology but also Einstein and Earth--takes the young explorer to a gallery of well-designed, fun, informative games. In the archaeology section, visitors can choose among four activities.
