Produced by THIRTEEN in association with WNET New York, Cyberchase is the multi-media, Emmy Award® winning mathematics series for children available on air on PBS KIDS GO! and online through dynamic web games, videos and print activities. Developed for kids ages 8 to 11 and packed with mystery, humor, and action, Cyberchase delivers positive messages about math by teaching concepts in a fun way that kids can understand.
In the world of Cyberchase, the dastardly villain Hacker is on a mad mission to overthrow Motherboard and take over Cyberspace with the help of his blundering henchbots, Buzz and Delete. But Motherboard enlists the help of three curious kids, Inez, Jackie, and Matt, and their cyberpal, Digit, to stop him. Their weapon: brain power. In For Real, the live-action segment following each animated episode, Harry and Bianca show kids how math can help solve life’s wacky problems in the real world.
Every episode, game and activity is motivated by Cyberchase characters and settings, and on a math concept centered on national standards. From tackling fractions in ancient Greece to using decimals to repair train tracks in Railroad Repair, kids learn that math is everywhere and a useful tool for solving problems.
And to further help kids explore their world and have a blast with math, grown-ups can bring the fun and adventure of Cyberchase home with hands-on activities that explore a range of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics.
