On Friday, March 17, 2017, in an event sponsored by WOWK and the Clay Center, Senator Joe Manchin joined students from across West Virginia to Skype with NASA astronauts, who are aboard the International Space Station.

Senator Manchin was thrilled to be a part of this opportunity.  He mentioned that it was an out of this world career day fair and went on to encourage students to be curious and learn.

Astronauts Shane Kimbrough  and Dr. Peggy Winston fielded questions from students across southern West Virginia.

WVPB and Gilmer County Public Library teamed up to screen the newest PBS KIDS Dinosaur Train Movie.  On Saturday, February 25,  30 youngsters showed up to watch the new movie, A Journey to the Center of the Earth, and participate in an archeology dig in the library. The dig was a sand box full of dinosaurs, marbles and precious rings unearthed by eager participants.

A Fun Partnership

Oct 28, 2016

Arnoldsburg Elementary School in Calhoun County partnered with WVPB to present educational activities to engage students while parents met with teachers for conferences! 

Students found that activities can be both fun and educational.  The evening was spent determining where the ideal cargo location would be for paper airplanes to complete a mission.  Another STEM activity included designing the tallest free standing structures using only pipe-cleaners.

We would like to Congratulate Rebecca Recco, from Kanawha County who has been chosen as West Virginia's Lead PBS Digital Innovator.  You may have already seen some of Rebecca's work if you have checked out our In the Making  series we have on WestVirginia LearningMedia.  Rebecca has everyone feel like they too can be an artist in the style of various West Virginia artists.

West Virginia Public Broadcasting has hundreds of thousands of digital resources available for teachers, caregivers and students on its West Virginia LearningMedia platform.  The breadth of these resources can be overwhelming so, we have launched a bi-monthly e-newsletter  to highlight a few of the incredible resources available for free. Our goal is to bring resources to you in a timely manner or to let you know of specific contests or activities with which we are involved.   

PBS LearningMedia, the media-on-demand service designed for K-12 classrooms, has announced a new app for students. For the first time, users can now access learning resources on tablets through the official PBS Student app, available for free for iPad.
