PBS Kids Lab

PBS KIDS is always working on something new—and usually several "somethings" at once! Whether it is new apps focusing on math or an augmented reality game using camera phones, you will be able to find the latest and greatest right here on PBS KIDS Lab. This is where we debut our newest games, and show early research results. Be among the very first to see what is new with beloved characters like Curious George, the Cat in the Hat, Buddy from Dinosaur Train, Sid the Science Kid, and more.
