Searching the internet and evaluating the content are important skills for students today to master.  However, many elementary teachers are understandably nervous about sending kids to Google to research.  KidRex is one solution! KidRex uses Google Custom Search and Google Safe Search technologies to maintain a database of kid safe websites and keyword searches.
