DRAGONFLYTV presents real-life science investigations in a style of television that captures the attention of today's MTV and video-game generation. Against a pop-music soundtrack, children tell about their investigations, communicating the infectious excitement that comes with making their own discoveries. DragonflyTV engages children, parents and teachers in accessible, hands-on science activities. The program is designed to appeal to children from diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds. By modeling and celebrating children's science capabilities, DragonflyTV has always shown that if kids can dream it, they can do it!
For children 9 to 12 years old.
The philosophy of DragonflyTV is rooted in a strong commitment to inquiry-based learning, which is at the heart of current reforms in science education, articulated in the National Science Education Standards. Our particular focus is to model scientific inquiry through real investigations conducted by real children, with a related objective of communicating basic science concepts appropriate for grades 4 through 6. DragonflyTV aggressively promotes diversity and the idea that all children are capable of understanding and doing science.
