WPSU Learning at Home

The 2020–21 school year is very different and we are here to help. Pennsylvania PBS, the seven public television stations across the commonwealth, want you to know that you are not alone.

Working with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the seven PBS stations across Pennsylvania joined together to create Learning at Home, your connection to thousands of hours of education and entertaining videos, activities, lessons, and games to support you. You can find out more at pennsylvaniapbs.org, in addition to our resources below.

Teachers, parents and caregivers: please explore! We are in this #TogetherPennsylvania.
