DragonFlyTV


DragonflyTV is an award-winning multi-media science education program combining television, community outreach, the Web, and fun. Produced by Twin Cities Public Television, creator of the long-running family science series Newton's Apple, DragonflyTV engages tens of millions of children, parents and teachers in accessible, hands-on science activities. DragonflyTV is designed to appeal to children from diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds. By modeling and celebrating children's science capabilities, DragonflyTV has always shown that if kids can dream it, they can do it!

DragonflyTV's first step has been to attract children with a TV show unlike anything they've seen before. The DragonflyTV television program is broadcast nationwide on PBS stations, and presents real-life science investigations in a style of television that captures the attention of today's MTV and video-game generation. Against a pop-music soundtrack, children tell about their investigations, communicating the infectious excitement that comes with making their own discoveries. The new season airs in 2008.

DragonflyTV extends beyond the television screen, offering a variety of standards-based learning tools. A rich, interactive Web site, a biannual children's science magazine, educators' guides, Fun Kits, and other outreach materials are available to schools, homes, community organizations, or any place kids gather to explore, create, and discover. It is not broadcasted on WGBH, NHPTV (New Hampshire Public Television), or on WNET New York.
