Nature Nuggets


Nature Nuggets are short, minute-long videos drawn from NATURE, one of the most watched documentary film series on public television.

Nature Nuggets began as a new pilot campaign by WNET’s Education Department to test text-based technology as an effective community engagement technique. For this purpose, the minute-long videos from the NATURE series were repackaged for early learners (ages 2 to 6) and promoted as a tool for active science and language learning opportunities to parents, educators and caregivers across the nation.

Nature Nuggets videos are also available on the Nature on PBS YouTube page.
