WVU Extension’s Energy Express on WVPB brings STEM, art, food and fun to West Virginia homes

Three individuals watch soda bottles explode into geysers as part of an experiment.

Children and families can tune in this summer to West Virginia Public Broadcasting to engage in fun, interactive programming through WVU Extension Service's Energy Express in the comfort of their homes. The six-week, summer television program will be hosted by Joel Brown and broadcast across West Virginia beginning June 21, 2021. The 30-minute episodes will air Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. and feature engaging activities in literacy, STEM, art, cooking, nature, nutrition and more.

Last year, WVU Extension Service and WVPB teamed up to bring valuable educational programming to homes to offset the many in-person events that were canceled due to the pandemic. The show, which features WVU faculty, staff and special guests, complemented virtual programming with educational activities children could enjoy at home.
