Share this post:  
When it comes to on-the-go learning or mobile learning podcasts are a key player. They enable users to access a wealth of knowledge that can be consumed virtually anywhere, and anytime. For us in education, we can not help but stress the centrality of educational podcasting in expanding students cognitive abilities, refining their individual personalities, and in developing their social and emotional intelligences. 

After we have reviewed some of the best tools that you can use with your students to create educational podcasts, today's post is thematically focused on a special podcast genre (science) created for a precise age group (kids). Science podcasts for kids are educational podcasts designed to make science understanding accessible to kids and help them make the best of their learned knowledge in their daily lives.

"Brains On!is a science podcast for curious kids and adults from American Public Media. Each week, a different kid co-host joins Molly Bloom to find answers to fascinating questions about the world sent in by listeners. Like, do dogs know they’re dogs? Or, why do feet stink? Plus, we have mystery sounds for you to guess, songs for you to dance to, and lots of facts -- all checked by experts."

Hosted by Earth Ranger Emma, this podcast provides interesting educational content to help kids explore the mysteries of nature. "Earth Rangers is the kids’ conservation organization, dedicated to educating children and their families about biodiversity, inspiring them to adopt sustainable behaviours, and empowering them to become directly involved in protecting animals and their habitats".

Another excellent podcast for kids and young learners. Wow in the Wold "hosts Mindy Thomas and Guy Raz share stories about the latest news in science, technology, and innovation. Stories that give kids hope, agency and make us all say "WOW"!"
