PBS KIDS brings content and resources to communities to help keep students active and encourage exploration at home and outdoors with their favorite characters.


Summer is an important time for learning. According to the Summer Learning Association, more than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth can be credited to unequal access to summer learning opportunities.


To help address this, KBTC and community partners offer educational resources, including tips, activities and summer programs, for children and families to make learning fun, all summer long.
