U. S. Census Bureau developed the American FactFinder Kids' Site in collaboration
with Allison Druin from the Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) at the University
of Maryland. Dr. Druin is a national leader in the effort to include children
as active design technology partners. Twice a week, children ages seven through eleven
join researchers from computer science, education, art, robotics, web development,
and other fields. Dr. Druin and the children worked with the Census Bureau in partnership
with IBM to design the American FactFinder Kids' Site.
