Son and mother learning on the computer at home

We’ve enhanced our TV lineup

This school year is going to be different. Caregivers, teachers, administrators and children are all faced with new challenges, questions and opportunities. WHYY-TV 12 is here to help.

Together with our fellow Pennsylvania PBS stations and Pennsylvania Department of Education, we have created Learning at Home, your connection to thousands of hours of educational and entertaining videos, activities and games. From Sesame Street for preschoolers to NOVA for high school science students, WHYY is the place to go for educational enrichment.

You will also find interactive Learning Shorts created by local educators and resources for parents to help their children stay engaged.

Teachers, parents and caregivers: please explore! We are in this #TogetherPennsylvania.
