“Catch the Science Bug” Series on PBS Rhode Island Receives Silver!

The “Catch the Science Bug” series on PBS Rhode Island has won a Parents’ Choice Silver Award! 

The idea to create a series was presented to me in 1999.  I was taking a class at Emerson College taught by Rex Trailer  former host of Boomtown. One day after class, Rex suggested that I host my own children’s television show on science.  This was like telling an aspiring high school hockey player that he could be the next Tim Thomas. I had no idea how this would all come together but had to try. Slowly but surely the pieces fell into place.   I couldn’t be more thankful that I caught the Science Bug and went along for the ride.  There have been over a thousand people who helped make Catch the Science Bug what it is today.  Sending all of you a BIG THANK YOU!  

Our next step is to reach even more children by making these episodes available on DVD.  We will keep you posted on our progress via blog entries.

A Happy Almost!

In March I entered an Oprah “call for viewers”. You had to state how the show has made an impact in your life.  Although I have learned many things from watching, Oprah started “Live Your Best Life” at the same time I started Catch the Science Bug.  The programming provided invaluable inspiration and direction when I was starting from scratch. 

In April, Harpo called and said that liked what they learned and we made the first cut for a photo appearance on the show. However, this particular segment did not make it to air but we are still very grateful, thrilled and humbled to be acknowledged by the Harpo producers.  By teaching and promoting science, we hope to inspire others to LIVE THEIR BEST LIFE!!!!   

Thank you Oprah and all the producers at Harpo Productions!   You’ve had a BRILLIANT 25 years!
