Itsy Bitsy and Adventure 2 Learning to Bring Meteoheroes to over 30k schools in America
Mega-hit maker and producer Kenn Viselman has teamed up with Adventure 2 Learning to provide an in-school digital education platform for MeteoHeroes to teach approximately 15,000,000 of America’s youth about climate change.
MeteoHeroes is the definitive climate change education series already seen in most of the countries and territories associated with the Paris Climate Accord (over 145 countries and 22 languages). This brilliant series debuted with great fanfare coast to coast on PBS, Earth Day ’22, and is planned for a full series rollout in the fall.
The classroom provides the greatest opportunity to foster awareness at an early age, devoid of distractions and outside influences. While educators, one of the most-trusted sources for kids and their families, have abundant resources to teach math and English language they sorely lack any resources – particularly digital ones – to teach new and emerging topics such as climate change education. itsy bitsy Entertainment together with Adventure 2 Learning will offer an ambitious strategy which includes distribution of specially created in-school broadcasts of MeteoHeroes. This will ensure that this much needed climate change education available to every school in the country. These episodes will be paired with an age-graded curriculum developed by Adventure 2 Learning for children 4-10 with specialized activities for children to do both in school and at home with their families.
The MeteoHeroes are a group of pint-sized superheroes, each of whom represent the seven continents and the different natural elements. Working in tandem to fight climate change disasters, our fearless heroes go to battle using their own unique superhuman abilities to save our planet. With humor and respect for its audience, the MeteoHeroes make the viewer part of the solution to the devastation they are seeing around them. The series’ brilliance is its ability to use humor to educate, empower and help as much as 84% of children globally who are worried about climate change , many of whom are experiencing a potential mental crisis of epidemic proportions known as “Climate Anxiety.”
“There’s no subject that’s nearer and dearer to my heart than science. We’re particularly excited to bring such an engaging program as MeteoHeroes to teach lessons about our planet and make learning about the environment fun!” stated Dr. Jenny Delfin, co-founder of Adventure 2 Learning.
“I am so delighted to see the vision for Meteoheroes becoming a reality. From the beginning of this journey of changing the world through storytelling, we have been committed to making sure that The MeteoHeroes would be wherever children are and this relationship with Jenny and the incredible Adventure 2 Learning team allows us to get closer to that dream. There is no lesson more important for children to learn than the message of hope and that they have the power within themselves to change the world” said Kenn Viselman showrunner for MeteoHeroes in North America.
