Virtual STEM Series with Bilingual Learning Experiences for Students

At a time when education systems are facing the challenges of the pandemic—and fieldtrips are on hold—the Perot Museum of Nature and Science has launched an engaging 10-part, STEM-focused virtual series called The Whynauts. Designed to make science relevant, exciting, and accessible, the academically aligned episodes feature charismatic scientists, along with diverse youth actors aged 10–15, who will lead students on a knowledge-packed journey of science exploration. Episode 1 and Episode 2—with dialogue in English and Spanish—are now available. The remaining eight episodes will roll out during the summer. Providing age-appropriate content, the episodes focus on physical science, earth science, and life science. Topics vary—from space and weather to engineering and chemistry, to plant and animal adaptations, paleontology, and plate tectonics. A primary goal of the series is to ensure all children, especially diverse audiences, see themselves represented prominently in STEM fields. Multiple episodes will feature American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) IF/THEN Ambassadors—female STEM innovators who serve as national role models. The episodes will also feature a former astronaut, Perot Museum paleontologists, a Texas Instruments engineer, a Telemundo meteorologist, and a Top Chef contestant, along with STEM experts from universities and other organizations. The 10 episodes and supporting educational materials are complimentary, with signup, through the 2021–2022 school year.
