ABOUT THE BUZZ ABOUT BEES FAMILY FUNFEST

The Springfield Museums and WGBY Public Television are pairing up to present The Buzz about Bees Family FunFest to celebrate the launch of the new science-based PBS series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! with activities for kids and families, including:

  • Family concert with Uncle Rock (1pm)
  • Special sneak preview of the premiere episode of the new PBS Kids program The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!
  • Meet a bee keeper and learn about a real bee hive in the Science Museum
  • Visit a honey market hosted by local bee keepers
  • Join a scavenger hunt through the museum galleries
  • Make bee antenna headbands
  • Try on glasses that make you see like a bee
  • Greet the Cat in the Hat and costumed bee characters as they travel through the Museums

ABOUT THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT!

A team of science and early childhood experts developed the curriculum for The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!™ Each episode begins with a question posed by Sally or Nick. Guided by the Cat, the kids figure things out for themselves by observing, collecting and managing clues, making connections, constructing and evaluating theories, and having discussions — all in a preschool-appropriate manner.

To support the show’s science curriculum, educator-designed parent and teacher resources will be available this fall on PBS Parents (pbsparents.org) and PBS Teachers (pbsteachers.org) sites. A specially prepared The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!™ Explorer’s Guide will empower parents and teachers to engage children in scientific inquiry, nurture their innate curiosity, and inspire them to stay excited and interested in science. The sites will also feature activities, tips, and strategies that parents and teachers can use to help children connect the science concepts in the series with their everyday explorations.
