PBS KIDS is kicking off the New Year on a “wild” note! On Monday, January 21, PBS KIDS’ popular WILD KRATTS series will have kids and parents diving into a creature adventure with the premiere of a new science special — WILD KRATTS “Lost at Sea.”
Along with the special science episode, there's a new online science game, “Dolphin Dive,”, which is the first PBS KIDS online game to include real animal sounds! In the game, players can learn about dolphin communication, as they help the Kratt Brothers use their dolphin Creature Power Suits to reunite lost dolphin babies with their pod. Kids can earn their own dolphin Creature Power Suit and then explore a new Coral Reef Habitat. “Dolphin Dive” will launch in the coming weeks, joining WILD KRATTS’ collection of popular science games.
During the one-hour event, brothers and wildlife explorers Martin and Chris Kratt go under the sea in two new episodes filled with humor and a whole lot of science. To kick off the adventure, the Kratts head to the most populated and diverse habitat on Earth — the coral reef — in “Blowfish Blowout.” Then the Wild Kratts decode the secret language of dolphins, among the smartest creatures on Earth, in “Speaking Dolphinese.”
Kids will also be able to explore natural science with the Kratts through new science games and science videos online, and new videos on mobile. In addition, the on-air special will be available on DVD starting January 22.
The one-hour science special premieres on Monday, January 21, on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
Both full episodes and clips from “Lost at Sea” will be available on the PBS KIDS Video Player at www.pbskids.org/video and on the PBS KIDS Video App on January 22, 2013.
