The Wonderful World of Science





Winner 1980 | Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation tackled the question, “Can you teach early school-age children the complexities of science?”. The answer is a resounding “Yes,” for their Wonderful World of Science series does just that. In a five-part series exploring earth, water, fire, air and man, the producers have blended scientific truths, questions from first, second, and third graders, original music and interesting special effects into a meaningful teaching tool. One of the program’s chief charms is that it refused to talk down to primary grade pupils. A Peabody Award for The Wonderful World of Science goes to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
