Backyard Safari is an engaging series of 13 half-hour programs that introduce
four-to seven-year olds to topics in science and natural history.
The primary goal of the series is to excite children, particularly those in under-served
audiences, such as girls and children of color, to investigate the natural world and develop
positive connections with scientific practice. A complementary goal is to help empower all
children to see themselves as “scientists” who can turn off the television, step outside, and
learn directly from the world around them.
