DragonflyTV_PosterRMC’s evaluation of DragonflyTV: Going Places in Science also afforded an opportunity to examine the storytelling strategies that were most effective in engaging children and conveying science content. A two-part study examined the strategies employed in different science investigation segments, including the number of child investigators, their development as characters, and how the hypotheses, data collection methods, and findings were presented, in light of children’s learning. The final report offered suggestions for best practices in using storytelling in children’s science television.
