The tutorial at the fair entrance can help you.

eXtension has one in-house builder, Dmitre Raposo of 3DFox Designs, and contracts with skilled experts as needed. Extension folks also contribute content to the project, because SL offers the opportunity for all to collaborate in the building process, using easy-to-learn built-in tools.

Since the start of this initiative, three more sims have been added, Morrill2, Morrill3, and Morrill4. eXtension also supports Bailey, a public island in Teen Second Life, accessible only to users age 13-17 and approved adults connected with the program. There is also a parcel on Eduisland, part of an education archipelago housing many universities and libraries.
