Marcy Gunther is the producer of Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, a reality game show featuring a Host Dog and six real life kids as contestants. Ruff always seems to have something going wrong in the doghouse, and he has the kids help him learn about how to solve the problem with science and engineering.

Have you or your kids seen Fetch? What do your kids think of Make:TV? What are some of the best shows on tv to help kids become more creative and competent? How can adults cultivate kids’ interest in science and technology? Join the conversation in the comments, and contribute your photos and video to the MAKE Flickr pool.

    Have you or your kids seen Fetch?

    Yes. We all love it.

    What do your kids think of Make:TV?

    They love it. That may be partly because I let them stay up to watch it. But not entirely.

    What are some of the best shows on tv to help kids become more creative and competent?

    Almost anything on PBS Kids, really. From Peep to Fetch to CyberChase to even Arthur.

    How can adults cultivate kids’ interest in science and technology?

    By being interested themselves. If you aren’t interested in science or math, you are probably going to act dismissive of it, which kills child interest.
