Nine PBS Science Power Hours

About this Event

To increase access to hands-on Science instruction, Nine PBS is partnering with Wesley House to implement Science Power Hour sessions that help children and their families to incorporate learning into their everyday lives. Cohorts will experience this unique six-week series of one-hour sessions. Sessions will incorporate highly engaging, culturally competent content and activities that boost engagement and learning:

- a segment from a Teaching in Room 9 lesson - interactive, hands-on activities for children and parents to do together, and

- reading time with a book focused on learning concepts and featuring characters of color Incorporating video, print, and digital media into playful learning strategies boosts children’s engagement and curiosity.

Each week kids will learn new ways to learn in their everyday lives, and parents will gain experience modeling learning activities that can be easily carried over into the home. Families will also be encouraged to sign up for Nine PBS’s Bright by Text service to receive daily tips and resources from leading experts targeted to the ages of their children. Families will receive PBS KIDS Playtime Pads for completion. Sponsored by Boeing.
