NURTURING THE CURIOSITY OF YOUNG LISTENERS

We are always looking for new ways to inspire and connect with our highly curious listeners. Brains On!, a science podcast “for kids and curious adults,” seamlessly blends science, learning and fun by asking and answering questions about the world and going wherever it takes them.

Campaign funds are accelerating expansion of Brains On! and enabling weekly production and distribution of new episodes to satisfy eager listeners hungry for a science lesson for their ears. Funding is helping us reach more listeners with new programming, as inquisitive minds learn and grow with us.

Brains On! was recently awarded a prestigious National Science Foundation grant, allowing the team to partner with the Science Museum of Minnesota to study the impact of children’s podcasts on science learning and discovery.

  • “Reviewers commented that Brains On! is filling a gap in providing innovative and engaging quality science learning to young children.”

  • “It’s witty, clever and so much fun that my kids (and I) don’t notice that we’re learning something.”
