Hi, I'm Brainard Starling, but you can call me Professor B. I'm creating Professor B's Amazing Laboratory, an internet TV show for kids, and I need your help.
When your child sits down to watch a video online, do you worry about the content being inappropriate, violent, or merely mind-numbing? I want you to feel confident that they can watch Professor B's Amazing Laboratory, they'll find safe, entertaining, and educational programming that they will want to watch over and over.
I won't just throw information at them, like school does. I'll teach them how to observe , think, and learn independently. We'll take our focus beyond STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) because art and science are natural partners in the brain. Once a child makes the connection between the Golden Ratio in art and math, they'll learn to recognize it in music, architecture, and the natural world. And then, they're off and running ! Able to use critical thinking skills in education and life. And it's fun!
We'll use fun skits, science experiments that are kid-friendly with adult supervision, stories, and silly songs, and I'll be joined from time to time by characters from around the world and real-life scientists, artists and musicians.
Why am I Professor B, you ask? Because by day I'm a degreed rocket scientist, but the rest of the time, I'm an actor, teacher, scout leader and minister. I work in the city, but I live in the country , so I see the best and worst parts of those worlds, and the virtues of both that benefit children and learning. I have the help of an amazing writer, producer/director, and production team - all-award-winning, to help make Professor B's Amazing Laboratory come to life.
All we need is $35k to shoot the pilot episode, and that is where you come in. If you want to be able to hand your child or grandchild your phone or tablet, and know that instead of playing some game where they mindlessly shoot characters, they're watching an entertaining , educational, age-appropriate show that they'll be excited to tell you about, please donate to this campaign. Thank you for joining us in making great programming for children.
We've got a great list of incentives coming, so stay tuned!
