Dive Deeper Into Ocean Science With the Splash and Bubbles App for Parents

You can explore and learn together as a family every time you watch PBS KIDS programming, but how do you dive deeper into the subjects you’re exploring? PBS KIDS has a unique solution!

Splash And Bubbles for Parents is a free app that provides families with conversation starters, videos, and activities to explore ocean science together. Developed in collaboration with early childhood and marine biology experts, the app can be used as a second-screen experience while watching “Splash and Bubbles” on broadcast or via streaming.

We were proud to work with The Jim Henson Company, Digital Promise and Curious Media — and, of course, amazing Arkansas families —  to partner to develop the free Splash And Bubbles for Parents App, funded by the National Science Foundation.

Arkansas PBS was awarded a $2,000 research grant from Digital Promise to engage with 20 local families to test this new app in fall 2020. As part of the research study, these families learned how to use the app to support their child’s science learning.

Now, you can learn how to yourself! Download the app for free from the PBS KIDS App Store for iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle tablets now at pbskids.org/apps/splash-and-bubbles-for-parents.html.
