This program is based on the discovery, in 1974, of the ceramic warriors, chariots and horses of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang Di. The program contains color photographs, video clips, audio commentary, text and maps which describe that period of China's history. The topics listed in the contents include the discovery of the ceramic army, the museum built over the excavation, the Great wall and various navigational tools such as maps, image index, timeline, chronology, thumbnails and a section called 'Ask the experts'. Review: For students of ancient history this program provides an excellent introduction to a particular period of Chinese history, 273 BC to 206 BC, the period when China moved from separate warring states to a unified empire under Qin Shi Huang Di. It could also be of value for students of Chinese culture and language, since audio commentary can be in Chinese if desired, and the glossary has Chinese characters and audio pronunciation of major topics. Art students will find the full-screen photographs of the soldiers and horses of interest as examples of particular styles of ceramic sculpture. All will enjoy learning about one of the most remarkable archaeological finds of the century, the discovery of over 7000 ceramic warriors and horses arranged in military formation.

Parents, teachers, and other educators have continuously sought ways to instruct children in a fun and interactive way. Counting games, alphabet blocks, and activity books have long been staples of "fun learning," and these have most recently been supplemented by educational technology. Software programs now teach children math, science, grammar, spelling, typing, and foreign languages. High school students can electronically practice for the SATs, while aspiring lawyers can find sample LSAT questions. Video games such as Math Blasters allow children to explore fantastic worlds based on numbers and equations. The entire Encyclopedia Britannica is now in digital format, allowing for easy searches. Learning has never been easier, nor so enjoyable. Warren Buckleitner, editor of "Children's Technology Review" and a doctor of educational psychology, has donated a representative sample of this diverse and still-growing medium. His extensive collection, which includes educational software of all subjects and for all ages, is an excellent example of the merging of work and play, and helps encourage us all to remember that "Play is our brain's favorite way of learning."
