Set Sail for Adventure and Learning on Latest Edition of VBTV’s “How in the World?”

Monday, April 04, 2011

Hop aboard the Airship Curiosity for the latest edition of VBTV’s award-winning program “How in the World?”


In the latest edition, kids can learn what causes tides, how solar panels work, where static electricity comes from and discover the steps the Wright Brothers took to become the first to fly.  Students will also have some hands-on fun by learning how to bend water with a comb or balloon and how to make their own electromagnet.


This educational journey also features other topics for students to sink their teeth into -- topics like what makes popcorn pop, why tapping on a soda can may keep the contents from squirting out when opened and how salt gets into a salted-in-the-shell peanut.


“How in the World?” is hosted by pilot Lindy Fay, who takes students’ questions and then flies the Airship Curiosity in search of experts who can provide the answers.


“How in the World” is shown on VBTV (Cox Channel 48 & Verizon Channel 45)

Mondays  6:30 a.m., Tuesdays  10:30 p.m., Wednesdays  9:30 a.m., Fridays  10:30 p.m., Saturdays 1:30 a.m. & 4:30 p.m. and Sundays 7:30 p.m.
