PLUM LANDING Explore Outdoors At-Home Study

December 15, 2020 | Media and Technology, Public Programs

PLUM LANDING a digital media PBS Kids series that is designed to motivate six- to nine-year-old children to investigate the natural world. Content developers from WGBH Boston and researchers from the Education Development Center (EDC) used an iterative research and design process to create the Plum Landing Explore Outdoors Toolkit. The Toolkit includes digital media resources (animated stories, live-action videos, an online badging system, a digital game, and an app for families), hands-on science activities, and support materials for parents, caregivers, educators, and program directors to help urban children reap the educational, mental, and physical health benefits of actively exploring nature. In 2019, Concord Evaluation Group (CEG) conducted an independent summative evaluation of Plum Landing. The evaluation included a at-home self-facilitated study.
