Sesame Workshop

Research programs
For international research projects on the use of media to educate children around the world. Since the Sesame Street programs often represent children’s first introduction to basic academic skills, the ability to understand and respond to the needs of children is critical. Research is at the core of this work, particularly as programs are aired to children with ever greater needs.
The Sesame Workshop, previously known as the Children’s Television Workshop, was founded in 1968.  Children in over 120 countries view the Workshop’s legendary television series Sesame Street, and local co-productions are broadcast in 21 more.
