As this non-traditional school year winds down and a non-traditional summer gears up, we know that it is important for kids to remain engaged in learning and exploration. GPB is committed to providing learning resources that help bridge the achievement gap. Studies have shown that kids lose significant knowledge in reading and math over the summer break, and GPB is here to help. Join us for a series of FUN and EDUCATIONAL online workshops for kids this summer, geared toward kids ages 4-8. Together, we’ll watch well-known PBS KIDS shows and participate in hands-on learning activities. Workshops will take place daily at 10am and will last approximately one hour.
