Students and teachers join in celebrating 20 years of KidsPost.

The introduction of competitive sports and inspiration from the athletes’ life stories, economics and personal finance, geography, physics and civics concepts emerge naturally from media coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Robotics and the new science of biomimetics appear in the media and provide lessons in scientific observation, technology and engineering design, and solutions to problems.
