PBS Science Guy
Redeems the Value of TV Shows.
Can TV shows do kids any good? You might think answer to that question is a hearty "No!" Public television,
however, has changed all that with the PBS Science Guy named Bill Nye.
With their funny music videos that teach basic science information and fast pace of humor, this show has changed the way kids look at science.
The programs, which won Emmy awards, were created between 1992 and 1998, and consist of 100 different episodes. Currently the program is syndicated so that it might appear on stations other than public television.
Canadian kids currently have a science tv program called Grossology.
If you want to buy the program in a video or DVD format, however, it is available. The DVDs were released with licensing for schools, which makes them expensive for regular consumers.
They can be purchased from Disney, maybe through Amazon or Ebay. Fortunately, the videos, which are no longer in production, can be found second hand in some instances. My local library has a few of them as well.

Bill Nye has made advanced science concepts accessible to kids through a variety of videos and books. Look for his programs on syndicated television, too.
