Brains On!

What makes children want to learn? Neurological studies show that curiosity makes our brains more receptive for learning so question-asking activities help students become better learners.

Brains On! is a podcast featuring science and kids produced by American Public Media. A different kid co-hosts each episode. They ask questions and go wherever the answers take them. Scientists talk to them about what they are doing and the things they think about.
