Science for younger viewers
3 March 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This show was on public television for a number of years and went through several different incarnations during its lifespan. The original version was hosted by Ira Flatow (science correspondent for NPR) and was broadcast out of Minneapolis. Each 30 minute episode would contain five or six different segments related to science, and sometimes included questions from the audience, answered by an in-studio expert in the field.

The show was geared roughly towards 8 to 10 year-olds, who will likely find it entertaining, although educators should be aware that earlier episodes deal with technologies that are outdated.

Nonetheless, the show was a good idea, and made a sincere effort to make science interesting and accessible to children.
