The Children's Television Workshop, which created Sesame Street and The Electric Company, asked 8-to 12-year-olds what they wanted to learn about science. The result is this snappy, daily after-school series with a different theme every week. In the first, about sound, musicians record the program's theme song, a scientist works with a talking computer and the three hosts (one black, one Latino, one white) ask questions. Parents will love it; there is a lesson even in an eardrum-shattering excerpt by Kiss.
