Cat in the Hat

Weekdays at 2:30 pm on HDTV

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!is designed to spark a love of learning and an interest in science in preschool-aged children. Based on Random House's best-selling Beginner Book collection "The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library," the TV series and online resources are designed to encourage positive views about science and scientists among tomorrow’s citizens and innovators — and help teachers and families build communities of science explorers.

In each program, the Cat in the Hat and his friends, Sally and Nick, go on a science adventure. Each half-hour episode includes two 11-minute adventures that focus on a specific science concept, such as bird migration or animal camouflage.

You can ride the Thingamajigger with the Cat weekdays on WGCU-TV at 2:30 pm. You can also click on http://pbskids.org/catinthehat/ to find favorite episodes, games and printable crafts.
