Description
Series Description
"NEWTON'S APPLE celebrates curiosity and experiential learning in children of all ages, as well as adults, while presenting a full range of science topics generated by viewers' questions. The fun-filled and adventurous half-hour series uses a hands-on, personalized approach to science, providing easy-to-understand explanations and making learning about science accessible and fun. "At NEWTON'S APPLE, our task is to extend invitations for learning. Because exploration is an on-going, ever-changing process, NEWTON'S APPLE seeks to spark children's natural curiosity about the world around them, opening the door to further scientific exploration and discovery. As part of our commitment to furthering science education, KTCA-TV, in a special collaboration with the National Science Teachers Association, developed classroom educational materials for use with the NEWTON'S APPLE programs, and distributed 40,000 of these packets free of charge to science teachers nationwide. "Shows submitted as examples of NEWTON'S APPLE: Shows #1004 and #1005 are good representatives of the variety of topics covered in most episodes. Shows #1001 and #1006 are 'specials' where the entire half-hour program is devoted to one subject area, e.g., a behind-the-scenes look at how NEWTON'S APPLE is made, and an odyssey to Antarctica with series host David Heil. "**Also, please see accompanying materials, including educational packet referred to above**."-- 1992 Peabody Awards entry form
