WGBH STEM Initiatives
For over 40 years, WGBH has developed expertise in translating science, math and engineering content to television, outreach, and digital learning, all the while ensuring that the final results are appealing to kids and useful to adults. STEM content is featured in WGBH programming such as PEEP and the Big Wide World, Curious George, Fetch!, Design Squad, and NOVA, among others.
Through outreach partners, WGBH is able to reach thousands of preschool kids, Pre-K-12 students, college students, and lifelong learners who benefit from the in-depth exploration of educational content. WGBH’s collaborators, in turn, are able to use the excitement of media to attract new audiences to their programs.
WGBH is recognized as one of the nation’s leading producers of media-based resources to support teaching and learning, focused on both content and methodology at all grade levels. This work has featured video libraries that illustrate effective standards-based STEM teaching in classrooms across the country. WGBH has also produced dozens of video profiles of scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians to illustrate for students a variety of engaging career paths.
WGBH’s commitment to STEM education continues with our current initiatives. At the Massachusetts STEM Summit 2013, we’re proud to feature: Resources for Early Learning http://resourcesforearlylearning.org; Next Generation Preschool Math http://nextgenmath.org/; NOVA Education http://pbs.org/nova/education, and a wide range of STEM resources for all grade levels found on our partner site PBS LearningMedia™ www.pbslearningmedia.org.
