Early Science and Engineering: The Impact of The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! on Learning
This study’s goal was to understand the extent to which providing access to media resources focused on critical science and engineering concepts can help children living in low-income households learn. The resources examined were from the PBS KIDS multi-platform property The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Researchers found that exposure to these resources had meaningful impacts on 4- to 5-year-old children's physical science knowledge and their ability to engage with science and engineering practices.
