DIY Science Time

DIY Science Time investigates the world through experiments, demonstrations and activities. Viewers are invited to join host Mister C. and his science crew to complete fun DIY science experiments using everyday household materials. DIY Science Time is designed for students in grades 4th-6th, but may also be of interest to younger or older children.

Curious Crew

How does that work? What happens next? Emmy award-winner Dr. Rob Stephenson and the Curious Crew capture the interest of inquisitive kids by taking a hands-on approach to investigating principles of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
