INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — It’s never too early to get your kids educated on internet safety.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is introducing “Into the Cloud,” a fun, interactive way for children ages 10 and under to learn about online safety strategies.

The free, animated web series follows the brother-sister duo, Nettie and Webster, and their trusted adult, Clicky the Robot, as they try to keep the NetSmartz neighborhood safe from the Webville Outlaws who send bad pictures to kids, asking for their personal information and do other things that make the internet less safe and fun.

The first two episodes debuted Aug. 6 on the NetSmartz Workshop YouTube channel or can be downloaded by clicking here.

“Into the Cloud” will consist of six episodes, each running between 3-6 minutes.

Discussion guides and classroom activities are available to further the discussion.
