Martian Explorations
A live-streaming role-playing game for kids aged 6-11 with riddles, mysteries, and problem solving.

8am Pacific / 11am Eastern



In The Martian Explorations, three kids play the roles of Martian Squirrel, Martian Mouse, and Martian Mole as they set out on an adventure to make the red planet a better place.

It’s a live-streamed role-playing game with an emphasis on nonviolence solutions, riddles, problem solving, and empathy. The game is led by nationally touring storyteller and children’s educator Doctor Sparks, and the choices of the kids are brought to life with puppets and artwork by Matt Chilbert’s Anything Place studio.

The Buzz with Adam & Harv

Have you heard The Buzz?

Join Adam Lazarus, bug expert and enthusiast, and Harv the animated stick bug to learn about bugs!

Blending some of the latest concepts in TV entertainment and DIY research, The Buzz is a science show where we explore current trends across the STEM fields and work together on at-home experiments, all within the story and plot of every episode. Hosted by science teacher and PBS host Adam Lazarus and animated Lord Howe Island stick insect Harv Stickly, we’ll take some of the cutting edge science out there, and bring it home to you.

CodeJoy Presents Robot Memories!

9:45am Pacific/12:45pm Eastern

Join Kelsey Derringer to learn to code and make robots!

Dottie has been around a long time. She has seen more and learned more than you or I could possibly imagine. Unfortunately, her hard drive has gotten a bit finicky over the years. Help bring Dottie’s memories to life through coding and robotics.

Join the CodeJoy classroom to learn the basics of coding. No special hardware is needed to interact with our in-studio robots.

MATERIALS:
  • If you have 2 devices, it may be a good idea to code on one and watch on another. MakeCode works best on a Chromebook or laptop.

Typewriter Stories with Dr. Sparks and Cecilia Olivera-Hillway!

10:30am Pacific / 1:30pm Eastern

Let’s use a mechanical typewriter to come up with a story together!

Doctor Sparks has been writing stories for people on his typewriter for six years. He wants to write your story next! Give him a prompt, he’ll ask you questions, and together you’ll figure out how the story is goes. The stories are illustrated by Cecilia Olivera-Hillway, and you’ll receive the typewritten story in the mail when it’s done.
