Viewpoint Science

カガクノミカタ [NHK]

So many things in our everyday lives have so many interesting things about them. But if you don’t know how to look, these interesting things can be surprisingly hard to find. On this program, we use a variety of scientific viewpoints to discover them. With these viewpoints, we try to see the things in our lives in slightly different ways. Our hope is that this program helps children learn how to explore all the interesting things in the world around them—how to ask questions, and how to discover new ones.
