Children & Media Lab

 Educational TV Project: Learning Science from Earth to Luna


sign up

As part of a series of studies on children’s science learning from educational TV, the Communication Arts Children & Media Lab is looking for 4- to 5-year-olds to watch clips from Earth to Luna, a popular educational TV show for preschool children. We’re studying the quality of science knowledge that children learn from this show.

Compensation: $10 per child

Who? Any child fluent enough in English to understand the show can participate!

What’s involved? One 20 to 25-minute session per child.  Parents fill out a 2-page background information sheet.

Where?  Communication Arts Research Center, 821 University Ave (Vilas Hall, 6th floor). To find us, enter the building on the corner of Park Street and University Ave. You’ll go up a ramp and through some big glass doors, where we’ll be waiting for you! To see a map and directions, click here.

When?  We are flexible about timing, and have slots on weekday mornings and afternoons, as well as on Saturdays. See our sign-up slots for our availabilities. If you sign up for a time, we will contact you a few days in advance of your scheduled appointment to confirm your visit.
