ZOOM -- image of TV show Title

"ZOOM," the Emmy Award-winning show that engaged kids in science and engineering activities is no longer on the air. Produced by WGHB-TV Boston from 1999-2005, and based on the popular 1970s television series with the same name, "ZOOM" engaged kids in science and engineering activities. The show was hosted by a diverse group of seven kids, who explored ideas submitted by viewers from across the country.

ZOOM's accompanying website encouraged kids to explore science and engineering at home and online, as well as submit their own material.

While the site is no longer accepting submissions, there's plenty of information available on the site including games and activities, teaching materials and much more.
