Issues: Education

Hi, Kids!
I'm Representative Vicky Hartzler and I want to welcome you to the student web page.  Here you'll have fun discovering more about the workings and processes of our federal government.  It's a great resource for school projects or if you just want to have some fun surfing the web on a rainy day.
Our web page is a portal to all kinds of fun.
You can try your hand at being a good spy by learning undercover tactics playing games on the CIA games page; design your own money at the Treasury; do a science experiment at the United States Department of Agriculture site; discover the hidden hazards in your home playing the Tox Mystery game at the National Library of Medicine; or test your skills as a Special Agent playing games at the FBI link.
There's something for everyone and I hope you will enjoy it,
As a former junior and senior high teacher, I believe knowledge is important and you can have fun while learning so enjoy the site and be sure and let us know how you like it.  You are our future and it is my goal to assist you in every way I can. 
Feel free to learn more about how you can apply for an internship working in my office or how to apply for a military academy.
Thank you, again, for visiting.  Please keep in touch and join me on Facebook and Twitter. 
Have fun!
