Part game show, part reality TV, and part spoof, FETCH! features real kids, real challenges, real science, and an unreal, animated-dog host named Ruff Ruffman.
For ages 6 to 10.
Funded in large part by the National Science Foundation, the series focuses on real world science, following six young contestants as they pursue questions, conduct experiments, and actively investigate the world around them. The program's primary science themes are animals, air and space, and invention. Viewers will get a chance to play along with the show, even after the TV is turned off, through an extensive outreach initiative that will sponsor individual and group challenges at science museums and after-school programs around the country.
The series encourages children to pursue questions they encounter, conduct experiments, and actively investigate the world around them. These problem-solving skills are an essential component of school success.
