Founded and directed by National Geographic Explorer Joe Grabowski, EBTSOYP follows scientists as they go about their business from their home labs to extreme locations in the field. In these 45-minute videos, the stars share the excitement of the work they’re doing, and answer kids’ questions and comments. What a great opportunity to inspire — and I Was a Kid is thrilled to be part of it.
