Welcome! Whyville is a virtual world geared for teen and pre-teen girls and boys.
Whyville's millions of registered "citizens" come from all over to learn, create, and have fun together. Whyville is their world. Whyville has places to go, things to do, and of course, people to see. Whyville has its own newspaper, its own Senators, its own beach, museum, City Hall and town square, its own suburbia, and even its own economy - citizens earn "clams" by playing educational games. And much, much, much more!
Joining Whyville is free. The primary support for Whyville comes from its sponsors.
