The Adventures of Meg A. Mole

The American Chemical Society has a chemistry portal for kids called "The Adventures of Meg A. Mole, Future Chemist.

Meg A. Mole's adventures are part of the ACS kids portal, which also includes WonderNet and Celebrating Chemistry, sites with games and science activities for elementary-school age kids.
