      DragonflyTV (NSDL Collection)

      "DragonflyTV," produced by Twin Cities Public Television, is a PBS science series that promotes authentic science inquiry by presenting "real kids doing real science."

       

      Each week, "DragonflyTV" introduces a new group of middle school students who investigate science in the world around them, from soccer-kicking experiments to studies of malformed frogs in students' back yards. Each episode includes several hands-on activities, and also features enthusiastic adult scientists who share their research, their love of science and pictures of themselves when they were kids. The program is seen on PBS stations nationwide, and streaming versions of the children's investigations are available on the Web site.
