Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Novus Quiz Kid

handheld video game

This LED handheld game represents one of many early electronic educational games. It includes a calculator-style keypad and allows users to input their own math problems, along with what they believe is the right answer. Users may then "ask" the game if their answer is indeed correct. The game will flash either a green or a red light - which appear as eyes on the background image of an owl - and the user either moves on to another question or repeats the above steps until the correct answer is given.
