Into The Outdoors

"Into the Outdoors" aims to get kids to want to go outside to explore, discover and understand the natural world around them. Part science lesson and part travelogue, the show not only tells viewers that they should help with energy conservation, it also explains why energy conservation is important. The young explorers featured on the show uncover the science behind sensible solutions to creating a healthy planet. But it's not all about science, there's craziness and laughter mixed in, because -- well -- learning should be fun.
