The Family workshop features
FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman. FETCH is a PBS science and engineering reality TV series for kids. The show is hosted
by Ruff Ruffman an animated dog who sends out real kids to pursue interesting challenges. The series
focuses on real world science, featuring kids as they pursue questions, conduct experiments, and
actively investigate the world around them. The FETCH activities offered in the Family workshop are designed to give
viewers a chance to play along with the show, even after the TV is turned off. Learn more about the show on this PBS Kids webpage.
