Club UYN (Use Your NetSmartz) - Certificate & Badge

Alisdair completed an online course from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website.  In the "Educator's Guide," the adventure game, which is called Router's Birthday Surprise, is described as "a comprehensive Internet and and personal safety resource for ages 5-10.  In this interactive adventure, Clicky throws a party for his good friend, Router the robo-pup.  Students follow Clicky through his busy day and become part of the story - playing a game show to learn the online safety rules, helping Clicky put the Webville Outlaws back in jail, and deciding who is a trusted adult.  Upon completion, students are certified NetSmartz Kids!"

The game can be found at http://www.netsmartzkids.org/rbs/index.htm  (Note: you will need to create a nickname before entering).

"This was a FUN and educational game." said Alisdair.  "My favourite part was when I got to watch the video clips and interact with Clicky and his friends.  The part that was the most fun was -- at the very end -- when I got to choose a gift to give Router for his birthday.  You also get to choose a box, to use as gift wrap, so I put his clam chowder into a take-out container."

Upon completion of the course, Alisdair received a certificate and a safety patrol badge (pictured below):
