All the Fun of a Field Trip Without Leaving Home.

The Airport captures all the fun, energy and excitement of a real working airport. Kids can check out the ticket counter in the main terminal. Work the controls in the cockpit of the Concord, and see how the ground crew prepares the planes. They can even sneak behind the scenes and find out where the baggage really goes. And that's just the beginning of this incredible tour.

Get ready to board! The Airport has over 40 incredible locations to explore. Just point and click and you're on your way.

Meet your tour guide. Buzzy the Knowledge Bug is your official Airport guide. He'll show you where the throttle is, tell you how radar works, - and even tell you what an altimeter is. All at the push of a button.

Every picture tells a story. More than 200 jobs, machines, tools and other objects are defined and explained in detail. Just click the mouse button and Buzzy reads the descriptions out loud.

Surprise Click Points. There's no telling what will happen when you click on a float plane, the control tower, the heliport and more. Things transform and create a lively world of sights and sounds that children love.

Learning has never been so much fun. Kids can go on a scavenger hunt, track luggage through a baggage maze, color pictures, learn fun facts, and match items with words - all in 5 fun-filled games.

Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, November 1995

"Each field trip presents dozens of scenes for investigation (the farm has 30; the airport, 40). At the airport, you can climb aboard a single-engine plane to play with objects in the cockpit. Go into the terminal and you can interact with the people standing in line at the ticket counter and follow baggage down a conveyor belt. Proceed through airport security and you can examine an animated helicopter. Visit the farm and you can roam around the farmhouse and barn where you'll meet horses in the pasture, feed the pigs, and harvest corn from the field. You can also interact with the chickens in the chicken coop."

"Frisky animations, sounds, and read-aloud information pages are not enough to guarantee that kids will enjoy a CD-ROM. That's why each Let's Explore disc also offers five entertaining activities. Both Airport and Farm have an online coloring book with scenes you can color using electronic paints. A trivia game asks multiple-choice questions about the spots visited on tour. Find It challenges players to locate field trip items for a treasure hunt. Other activities build spelling and matching skills or strengthen hand-eye coordination through fast-paced, arcade-like action."
