DragonflyTV . Podcast - Rivers | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We're Margaret and Elizabeth, and we're hitting the links...at the Science Museum of Minnesota! Our local science museum actually has a mini-golf course that was designed so kids can learn about rivers while putting. As we played on this specialized course, our minds wandered from holes-in-one to how real rivers work. Our DragonflyTV question: What do rivers do to the land?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Ski Jumping | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We were born to ski jump. Our dads, grandpas and uncles did it, too. But when we check out old movies of them jumping, those guys used some crazy styles! We want to find out: Which ski jump positions work best, our moves or the old-school ways?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Perception | PBS Kids Go!

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We think that the human brain is the most fascinating "machine" of all. We're especially curious about what humans remember when their minds are focused on conversations or activities. Our question: How well can people pay attention to two things at once?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Glo Germ | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

As the weather gets colder, kids seem to share a lot more germs. As busy scientists, we don't have time to get sick. Our DFTV question: how can we avoid spreading germs and viruses to our friends and families? Does it make a difference whether we sneeze into our hands or into our elbows?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Prairie Dog Calls | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We visit the zoo a lot. One of the funniest exhibits is the prairie dogs. They're always busy yipping and yapping, but we wondered if they just make noise or if they are communicating. Our DragonflyTV question was: Do prairie dogs make different kinds of barks?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Pet Therapy | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

I'm Jeff, and I'm wild about animals. From my own experience with cancer, I know that pets always make me smile, even on my toughest days. Now my sister Jenny and I want to know if pets can help other kids. Can holding a furry friend help lessen pain for kids who have to have a painful medical procedure?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Otters | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 19 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We're animal lovers who are always on the lookout to learn more about our furry friends. We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to visit some of the otters and after some observation, we wondered if captive otters behave differently from wild ones. Our question: Do otters groom more in captivity or in the wilderness?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Paragliding | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 19 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We live in Aspen, Colorado, and we are learning to paraglide. We know that the key to a great ride is to find thermals. Thermals are bubbles of rising air that lift the paraglider back up into the sky. Our question: Where are the strongest thermals?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Double Dutch | PBS KIDS GO!

Wed, 17 Jan 2007 15:00:00 -0600

We're Francesca, Precious, and Marnicka, and we're jumping for joy whenever anyone mentions Double Dutch. Double Dutch jump roping dates back to the 1600's, and uses two ropes instead of one. Special moves like the washing machine, the mamba, and pop-ups make Double Dutch cool, and competitions keep things interesting! One of the most important things in Double Dutch is to sense the rope's beat. Although you can both hear and see the ropes, it's easy to get distracted by the music, lights, or other kids at a competition. This got us thinking: Does hearing or seeing the ropes have a bigger effect on our performance, or are both these senses equally important?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Moon Craters | PBS KIDS GO!

Tue, 16 Jan 2007 14:30:00 -0600

We're crazy about astronomy! We've even made our own telescopes. We were looking at the moon one night and noticed just how many craters there are on the moon. We could even see differences in the various craters, which got us thinking: How do craters form?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Model Rockets | PBS KIDS GO!

Tue, 16 Jan 2007 14:30:00 -0600

Blast off into space! Until we get our chance to travel in space, we build and fly model rockets here on Earth. We're designing a rocket to compete in a model rocket festival in Amarillo, Texas. Our question is: How can we design a rocket that reaches 1,600 feet?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Makeup | PBS KIDS GO!

Tue, 16 Jan 2007 14:30:00 -0600

We're Jazi and Danielle, and we made up our minds to make some makeup! We took a cool chemistry class where we learned about what makes cosmetics look, smell, and feel good. We created a formula for lip gloss and lotion, and shared our beautiful results with our friends. But our curiousity didn't end when the class did; we want to make our products even better! Our DragonflyTV question: How can we create even better lip gloss and lotion formulas?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Lift Off | PBS Kids Go!

Tue, 16 Jan 2007 14:30:00 -0600

We've all been to NASA's Space Camp. Back home, we entered a rocket-building contest where the challenge was to build a rocket with devices attached that could measure or detect other planets' environments. Our question: How can we make good sensors for our rocket?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Ice Skating | PBS KIDS GO!

Tue, 16 Jan 2007 14:30:00 -0600

We're good friends and our favorite activity is figure skating. Even though we've been competing for years, our heads still get jumbled during spins. So, we wanted to figure out what makes us the most dizzy: How we hold our heads when we spin or where we look?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - F-Scale | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 05 Jan 2007 15:30:00 -0600

We watched a news report on the destruction caused by a tornado in Siren, Wisconsin. This report made us curious about how tornado experts study tornado damage. We asked permission from Siren city officials to visit the town and examine the evidence. Our question: How do you determine the strength of a tornado?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Kart Racing | PBS KIDS GO!

Tue, 16 Jan 2007 14:30:00 -0600

We like to beat the boys on the racetrack. In fact, we call our team "Beat the Boys!" Our races are on different tracks with different conditions, so we have to adjust our karts before each race. The gears are the main thing we change. Each gear has a different number of teeth and each gear changes the way it drives. So the question is: Which gear gives us the best performance?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Hip Hop Dancing | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 05 Jan 2007 15:30:00 -0600

We've been taking dance lessons for years. We've noticed that some tunes are easier to dance to than others and we guessed that it has something to do with a song's tempo. Tempo is measured in beats-per-minute (BPM). Our DragonflyTV question was: How does the BPM of hip hop music affect the way a dancer dances?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Extreme Sounds | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 05 Jan 2007 15:30:00 -0600

We live in one of the world's noisiest cities, New York City. There's so much going on here that it's hard to hear yourself think. Our DragonflyTV question was: Are the sounds of the city as loud as we think they are?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Hovercraft | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 05 Jan 2007 15:30:00 -0600

Who doesn't love to rise above it all? We're into engineering, so we built our own hovercraft. But it didn't work very well on grass. Our question: How can we optimize our design to create the best air film?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Coral Reef | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 15 Dec 2006 16:30:00 -0600

We want to get to the bottom of things. Especially the ocean! We built an ROV, which stands for Remotely Operated Vehicle. We control it from above and it goes way down into the ocean. When we heard that some of the Florida Keys' coral was diseased, damaged and beginning to die, we wanted to learn more. What can our ROV tell us about the health of a coral reef?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Fencing | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 05 Jan 2007 15:30:00 -0600

En garde! We are Paula and Alyssa, and we love fencing. Some people think fencing's old fashioned, but it's got to have something going for it, because it's been around over three thousand years! In modern fencing, electronic sensors tell you when a hit is scored, so accuracy is key. Since we're always trying to improve our fencing strategies, we asked: What effect does the force of attack have on accuracy?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Caves | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 11 Dec 2006 15:30:00 -0600

We love to plan mysterious adventures in our home state of California, and what is more mysterious than a deep, dark, rocky cave? We explored the California Cavern to answer this DFTV question: how do cave formations change as we explore the deepest parts of the cavern?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Basketball | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 11 Dec 2006 15:30:00 -0600

We are into hoops big time, whether it is one-on-one, three-on-three, in the gym or on the asphalt. We were working on our jump shots, and noticed that kids younger than us shoot from their chin, but kids older than us do overhead shots. We wondered what the difference was between the two shots. Our DFTV question: At the start of a jump shot, how does your hand position affect your overall shooting?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Baby Animals | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 11 Dec 2006 15:30:00 -0600

It does not matter if animals are furry or feathered, we are wild about all of them! We went to the zoo last spring and noticed a bunch of new baby animals. We knew they would not stay little for long and wondered which animal would grow the fastest: a calf, a chick or a piglet?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Diving | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 15 Dec 2006 16:30:00 -0600

We are Jaq and Niki, and we always make a splash with our favorite sport: diving! Actually, just the opposite is true; we try NOT to make waves. Since competitive divers are judged on form and entry into the water, less splash is better. So let's dive into our DragonflyTV question: How should we dive to reduce splash and achieve higher scores?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Cheetahs | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 15 Dec 2006 16:30:00 -0600

DragonflyTV has gone global! We are Mickey and Caroline, and we are at the Cheetah Conservation Fund, located in Otjiwarongo, Namibia. We are working with Dr. Laurie Marker, who told us that the Fund protects cheetahs that were either orphaned when their mothers were killed or captured by farmers to protect their herds. We wanted to learn even more about how these big cats and how they thrive in their natural habitat, so we asked the DragonflyTV question: What time of day is best for cheetahs to hunt their prey, and why?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Sled Dogs | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 01 Dec 2006 16:00:00 -0600

We live in Minnesota, and our whole family raises and races sled dogs. We race 4-dog, 6-dog, and 12-dog teams. Selecting the dogs to make up a team is a tricky process, because the dogs don't just have to run fast, they have to get along as a team. We are trying to put together a new team of four dogs, and we want to know: can we use dog respiration rate as a way to match dogs up in a team?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Circus Stunts | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 18 Aug 2006 15:30:00 -0600

We're students at Circus Juventas, a circus arts school in St. Paul, Minnesota. I guess you could say that our lives really ARE a three-ring circus! One of our hardest performances is the tightrope. Sometimes we carry a balancing pole. Sometimes we use no pole at all. Our question is: How does a pole help you balance on the high wire and how long does that pole have to be?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Turtle Babies | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 09 Feb 2007 14:00:00 -0600

We swim in the slow lane because we love turtles! We work with researchers from the Marine Life Center. They study the habits of three endangered turtles - the leatherback, green sea, and loggerhead turtle. All of these turtles lay their eggs on our beach, so we wanted to know how many loggerhead babies make it from their nest to the water?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Sand Dunes | PBS KIDS GO!

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:30:00 -0600

It's an ocean of sand here at the Guadalupe-Nipomo Sand Dunes. Just like us, sand dunes come in different shapes and sizes. One of the coolest differences between sand dunes is the plants that grow on them, but we didn't understand why some dunes are full of plants and others aren't. So we decided to investigate for ourselves!

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Ice Bike | PBS Kids Go!

Fri, 01 Dec 2006 16:30:00 -0600

We are Bob and Brennan, and we are into a very cool, very slick sport: ice biking! Our school holds an annual ice bike race, and goal is to design and build the winning bike. We know we want to modify one of last year's top models by adding studs to the tires. The studs will give us traction, kind of like cleats do on shoes. Our DragonflyTV question is: How many studs should we add for maximum speed on ice?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Robot War | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 25 Aug 2006 11:30:00 -0600

I build robots that battle against other bots. One of my first bots was TurboGnome. It faired well in its matches, but my last competitor defeated TurboGnome pretty badly. I wondered: How could I build and design a robot that had a more effective weapon?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Hot Air Balloons | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 08 Sep 2006 10:30:00 -0600

We're fascinated by the grace and speed of colorful, gigantic hot air balloons. To learn more about these massive beauties, we went to the Snowmass Hot Air Balloon Festival in Colorado. We were wondering how something bigger than a house can lift off the ground. Our question: How does hot air lift things?

Mon, 18 Sep 2006 12:30:00 -0600

We live in sunny California. We know that people are using the sun to provide energy to businesses and homes. Isaac even has a toy solar car. Our question: How does the sun's position in the sky affect a solar car's performance?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Tigers and Otters | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 09 Feb 2007 14:00:00 -0600

Hi! Chelsea and Camille here, checking out the fur, feathers, and fun at our local zoo. We love animals, and we like to make them feel as happy as possible. One way to accomplish this is through "zoo enrichment." Zoo enrichment involves giving animals interesting objects, and making their environments seem like home. Good enrichment stimulates the animals to use their natural skills and behaviors, and keeps them from getting bored. So when we decided to design an enrichment for tigers and otters, we wondered: How do zoo keepers know what items or surroundings to give an animal, and what if the animal ignores the enrichment?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Trebuchet | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 09 Feb 2007 14:00:00 -0600

We're Angus and Jonathon, and we're into really old-school stuff: medieval history! When we're not building castles, playing joust, or reading about knights, we're engineering stuff. Our most recent invention is called a trebuchet, a slingshot-like tool dating back to medieval days that is useful for transporting materials (translation: flinging stuff) long distances. We want to throw out this DragonflyTV question: What trebuchet design will allow us to throw things the farthest?

Fri, 09 Feb 2007 14:00:00 -0600

In Southern California, we can't help but catch rays! We're outside a lot, so we slather on the sunscreen. With all of the SPF (Sun Protection Factor) numbers available, we want to know: What SPF lotion really works best at keeping out the sun's harmful UV rays?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Snakes | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 09 Feb 2007 14:00:00 -0600

We've been handling snakes and reptiles our whole lives. One thing you learn with snake handling is to wash your hands before you pick them up because they have a super strong sense of smell. They smell with their tongues, so if you had something for lunch, the snake will flick its tongue and smell it on you. That got us thinking: Can you tell what food a snake craves by its tongue flicks?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Forecasting | PBS KIDS GO!

Tue, 13 Mar 2007 10:00:00 -0600

We wondered how people predicted the weather in the days before Doppler radar and computers. We've heard folklore about "homemade" or natural ways of predicting the weather and we were curious if some of those tales were actually true. Our question: Can you use folklore to predict the weather?

We're Brittney and Maggie, and whether we're bumping, setting, or spiking, volleyball is our favorite game. Like any team activity, communication really helps. Sharing information and cheering on our teammates guides and motivates our teammates during this lightening-fast game. But how much is too much? Our DragonflyTV query is this: Is talking on the court helpful or just plain distracting?

Curling, our favorite sport, is a sport in which you slide four heavy rocks down an icy surface at the center of a target. The team with the rock closest to the target's center scores a point. When we release the rock, we give it a little bit of spin, so it curves a little, or "curls." This got us thinking: How does the spin we put on the rocks affect where it goes?

DragonflyTV . Podcast - Wolves | PBS KIDS GO!

Fri, 30 Mar 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We're Zachary and Gerit, and we're NOT afraid of the big, bad wolf! In fact, we love pack animals so much that we volunteer at our local wildlife science center. By helping out with chores and feeding, we've learned that wolves have strong family bonds. Although all pack members have special and important roles, each pack has an Alpha male who acts as the leader. As we spent more time with the science center's wolves, we started wondering: Which wolf is the pack's Alpha?

Fri, 20 Apr 2007 16:30:00 -0600

We're Milan and Harison, and we love going to the ocean. We like to learn about the animals that live off the coast of Los Angeles, and a great place to do that is the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific. Our favorite exhibit there is the shark and ray pool. You can see them up close, and even touch them. We think it's interesting to watch a ray eat, with its mouth on the underside of its body. We got to wondering: How does a fish's mouth type affect what it eats?

That's when a player hits the ball at just the right spot on the bat-and whoosh!-the ball goes really, really far. Since we each use different kinds of bats, we wondered: is the sweet spot on an aluminum bat the same as the sweet spot on a wood bat?

But we're more interested in TINY fossils because they tell the rest of the story about life on Earth millions of years ago. These microfossils are things like teeth, jawbones, and other small bones from animals including crocodiles, fish, and even mammals. Our question: What kinds of creatures lived alongside the big dinosaurs in Texas?
