For the last few years, I've been writing the Dr. Greenie's Mad Lab segments for the TV show, Planet Echo. I just learned today that the show received a Parents' Choice Award for season 1.
From the Parents' Choice website:
"The program is recommended for kids aged 8 to 12, and though some of the skits are a little corny, the factoids are fascinating and there's a nice blend of hard science and light-hearted humor to keep kids' attention. The program includes frequent tags directing viewers to the companion website for more activities and information, and many show segments are available for viewing on demand.
For a universal message about doing your part to help save the planet, and an interesting glimpse into Aboriginal history and culture in Canada, Planet Echo is an earnest half-hour offering up positive suggestions kids can understand and put into practice in their own lives."
All I can say is wait til the folks at Parents' Choice see seasons 2 and 3!
