Ohio’s PBS stations, through a partnership with the Ohio Department of Education, are working with families and out-of-school time programs to address disruptions to learning caused during the COVID-19 pandemic. WBGU-PBS is excited to be part of this initiative!

Ohio Learns 360 provides families and out-of-school time professionals with PBS resources including standards-based curriculum and materials, virtual field trips, interactive video programs and community events. All are designed to accelerate student learning and support learners in kindergarten through fifth grade.


Ohio Learns 360 Camp-in-a-Box trainings are free professional development trainings for K-5 after-school and summer school professionals. Each person who attends will receive a box that includes FREE resources for a week-long camp, including books, a standards-based curriculum and materials for hands-on activities for up to 20 children! New boxes with different themes are available quarterly.
