WMHT Educational Resources

What distinguishes WMHT and PBS from other broadcasters is our public service commitment to fostering lifelong learning. This commitment is reflected in our on-air educational programs, our online services and in the work we do within the community. An established PBS affiliate serving Eastern New York State and areas of Western New England, WMHT-TV offers a rich array of educational children's television programs, from Sesame Street to Curious George to newer favorites like Super WHY!.

WEXT-FM, a service of WMHT, also offers kid-friendly radio programs, such as 'The Peanut Butter Jam.' But WMHT's educational mission extends beyond our broadcasts. In offering in-person Ready to Learn workshops, our staff uses PBS content to build children's literacy skills. We also host numerous other community events for parents and educators, such as film screenings and family literacy events.

TED Talks Education

WMHT is proud to be part of the TED Talks Education outreach initiative that highlights and celebrates the efforts of successful local educators, organizations, community partnerships and/or unique educational assets. Through this initiative, WMHT will be able to provide educators with information and ideas to inform and energize their classroom practices, as well as connect the topics explored in the TED Talks Education television special to local communities.
