The Kid Should See This

When a volcano erupts underwater

Swim down under Hawaiian waters with PBS Digital Studios’ UnderH2O team to watch how lava from the rumbling Kilauea crater bursts into the Pacific Ocean, and then quickly cools to form what’s called pillow lava.

Another underwater adventure in the archives: diving under a lake covered with Antarctic ice.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.

Curated, kid-friendly, independently-published. Support this mission by becoming a sustaining member today.
