August 31 through September 2 at 7 p.m.
Gather your family as we join scientists, animal behaviorists and other experts in a LIVE broadcast to view the once endangered, now thriving ecosystem of Monterey Bay, California, where nature’s most charismatic marine creatures gather to feed on an abundance of food. From whales and sea lions to sharks and all sorts of seabirds, this three-night broadcast will spotlight the incredible animals as they do what they have always done – but now we see and learn. Science reporters will help interpret what we see, and present reports on the natural history and interplay of the ocean and the bay.

The Powerful Effects of Sesame Street
A new paper by Melissa Kearney, an economics professor at the University of Maryland, and Phillip Levine, an economics professor at Wellesley College, finds that kids can learn as much from Sesame Street as a preschool classroom. The most authoritative study ever done on the impact of Sesame Street, finds that one of public TV's most recognizable shows has delivered lasting educational benefits to millions of American children - benefits as powerful as the ones children get from going to preschool.
