PBS Reno Curiosity Classroom uses on air, online, and print resources to help parents, caregivers and childhood educators prepare children for success. Locally, PBS Reno is bringing these resources to communities in northern Nevada and northeastern California through PBS Reno Curiosity Classroom workshops.  PBS Reno Curiosity Classroom workshops are based on the standards and mission of the PBS Ready To Learn initiative.  

PBS Reno offers free Curiosity Classroom workshops specifically developed for PreK through 4th grade students for educators and community educational organizations.  An engaging video clip, a read aloud, and fun hands-on activities are integrated into each workshop.  Lessons are aligned to the Common Core Standards, Next Generation Science Standards and Nevada Academic Content Standards.  All materials are supplied and a trained facilitator will lead the 45 to 60-minute workshop.

An assessment of our Ready To Learn service (conducted in conjunction with the University of Nevada, Reno) indicates there is significant value in spending time in our workshops as they maximize greater learning outcomes through novelty instruction.
