Science Friday Kids' Connection

Each Friday afternoon, National Public Radio program host Ira Flatow brings newsworthy reporting and special guests together during two hour-long segments, broadcast live from 2-4 pm ET. A listing of stations carrying the program can be found . If you cannot tune in live, you may listen online to programs found here at no cost.

In October 2002, the Kids Connection made its debut as a teacher-friendly educational component. It offers discussion ideas, activities, selected resources, and related science standards. These link programming to the classroom curriculum and are designed to help teachers freshen and energize the required curricula in middle schools.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
