Learning at Home with WQED and Pennsylvania PBS

The 2020 – 2021 school year is going to be different. Caregivers, teachers, administrators and children are all faced with new challenges, questions and worries. Pennsylvania PBS, made up of WQED and the six other public television stations across the commonwealth, want you to know that you are not alone. Working with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, we have created Learning at Home, your connection to thousands of hours of educational and entertaining videos, activities and games to support you. From Sesame Street for preschoolers to NOVA for high school science students, public television offers engaging programs that will support your child’s learning.

Teachers, parents and caregivers: please explore! We are in this #TogetherPennsylvania.
