Kratts Gone Wild - a new series premiering on PBS KIDS GO!
Monday, January 3rd, 2011
Animals can take you anywhere in science! And through the magic of animation and laugh-out-loud funny adventures, real-life zoologists Chris and Martin Kratt
are taking your 6- to 8-year olds along for the adventure. WILD KRATTS, a new series premiering Monday, Jan. 3 at 4:00 p.m. on PBS KIDS GO!, harnesses the
huge appeal of animals to this age group as a launch pad into science by introducing key concepts of chemistry, physics, geology, biology and natural history.
From elephants using the physics of suction to suck gallons of water with their trunks to a fleet of peregrine falcons that harness the force
of gravity to speed through the air, each of the 40 new half-hour episodes of WILD KRATTS presents age-appropriate science inspired by the natural abilities
of the animals that the Kratt brothers – and young viewers – meet.
With a diverse cast of male and female characters, including two young role models for girls, WILD KRATTS helps promote the message that science
can be fun. And WILD KRATTS roars to life beyond the television screen, too, with interactive and immersive online activities at pbskidsgo.org that will further
extend the learning and encourage kids to embark on their own missions and help save the planet with Creature Power!
