About the Lab

PBS KIDS is always working on something new—and usually several "somethings" at once! Whether it is new apps focusing on math or an augmented reality game using camera phones, you will be able to find the latest and greatest right here on PBS KIDS Lab. This is where we debut our newest games, and show early research results. Be among the very first to see what is new with beloved characters like Curious George, the Cat in the Hat, Buddy from Dinosaur Train, Sid the Science Kid, and more.

  • What is the Lab?

    PBS KIDS Lab is built on the belief that every new technology is an opportunity for learning. We work closely with researchers and advisers every step of the way, from building curriculum frameworks to ensure that all of our content aligns to state and national standards, to testing early prototypes with kids.

  • Meet the Advisers

    When we develop new online games or new episodes for a PBS KIDS TV show, we work closely with educational experts and other advisers every step of the way, from building curriculum frameworks and reviewing game and show concepts, to testing early prototypes with kids. All the content on PBS KIDS Lab is carefully vetted through our team of advisers.

  • Meet the Math Mentors

    PBS KIDS has assembled a team of early childhood educators and education bloggers who will provide parents tips and ideas on how to help children ages 2-8 learn early math concepts and integrate math activities into their daily lives.
