IWonder launched last spring and has quickly become one of INFOhio's most popular tools for students in grades 3-9. IWonder is a collection of websites, chosen by Ohio school librarians, for students to use for classroom or personal research. This school year some of the most popular IWonder questions have been:
- Do you want to learn more about the world around you?
- Do you have a math problem to solve?
- Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?
