Satiating the curiosity of young minds


 Krishna Desai, Prateek Sethi and Crash, the Robot.

Mummy, why is our doggie black in colour?”, “Daddy why does the moon look white?”
 If you are tired of answering these questions, there is some relief now. Pogo has launched its latest original production F.A.Q (Frequently Asked Questions), which will answer all your child’s queries.

“Making learning fun for kids is something we strongly believe in. POGO is a destination for young minds who dream bigger, think louder, play smarter and bounce higher. F.A.Q is by far the most challenging show, as we aim to re-introduce science as an engaging, fun and exciting subject,” says Krishna Desai, Director Programming (South Asia), Turner International India, who was in the City for the launch.

The programme encourages kids to question and learn the process of exploration and discovery via experiments.

It has been developed with the help of accredited scientists. The show has as its host Prateek Sethi along with his robot assistant Crash.

Says Sethi, “I have enjoyed every moment of bringing F.A.Q to life. As a self-professed science enthusiast, I have a natural curiosity about the world around us. I am positive that viewers of all ages will enjoy the journey as we discover something amazing and new in every episode.”

In each thematic episode, F.A.Q will demystify the principles of air, water, gas, pressure, heat and temperature. With no unimaginative textbooks, no homework, and no exams, the show aims to stimulate young minds to discover science experimentally, encouraging children to realise the mechanics of the physical, biological and chemical world around them.

The show begins and ends with some tricks that quiz the mind and go onto explore everyday phenomenon.

Assisting Prateek in this endeavour is his robot pal Crash, a non-talking character who expresses himself through his actions, adding lots of laughs to the show.

During this journey of scientific discovery, kids are invited to interact with Prateek and Crash by answering questions. Those kids who want to send in their questions to Prateek can log on to which is an interactive micro-site. The show is supported by a multi-city school contact programme reaching out to over 9,00,000 kids.
