Bringing Science Home with PEEP

NSF Awards: 1612643

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

Bringing Science Home with PEEP (now called PEEP Family Science) is designed for parents and their preschool children, especially those who belong to home visiting programs. These programs serve families living in poverty, offering parents who can’t send their children to preschool educational resources to use at home. PEEP comes in free, easy-to-use apps, in English and Spanish, which make it fun for families to do science together at home.

PEEP Family Science builds on the NSF-funded, Emmy Award–winning animated science show, PEEP and the Big Wide World, created by WGBH, Boston’s public media station. Researchers from Education Development Center (EDC) tested the program over a two-year period with more than 200 diverse families from two long-established home visiting programs, HIPPY USA and AVANCE. Testing took place in Arkansas and Texas, in both English and Spanish.
