Science Channel Gets Kids Excited About Science with ‘Head Rush’

Science Channel has just the thing to lure kids away from their after-school texting and iPods — a new commercial-free programming block focused on science.

Head Rush, which debuts on Monday, August 23 at 4pm ET/PT (and airs Monday through Friday, as well as Saturdays from 7-9am ET/PT), is geared toward middle school students, sharing the wonders of science and showing how it is a vital part of their everyday lives. Hosted by MythBusters‘ Kari Byron, Head Rush is also part of Discovery Communications’ commitment to The White House’s STEM initiative, which emphasizes science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.
