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, we have created Learning at Home, your connection to thousands of hours of educational and entertaining videos, activities and games to support you.

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