Sesame Street to Feature STEM in
New Season

In addition to the letter and number of the day, Sesame Street will be featuring some exciting new topics in the show’s 42nd season: engineering, science, and math!

Researchers have long noted that students who watch the show as children tend to do better in school, so incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts can be seen as part of a larger effort to boost STEM learning in the U.S.

In an interview with ABC News, the show’s executive producer Carol-Lynn Parente remarked, “It all boils down to a curriculum of asking questions, observing…making a hypothesis, and testing it out.” This season will also see a new role for orange monster Murray with a segment called “Murray’s Science Experiments.”

Whether you have a younger sibling who is curious about engineering, or still enjoy the charming antics of Elmo, Big Bird, and friends, now is a great time to start tuning in to Sesame Street.
