Mission

We want to be the special teacher everyone should have. The mission of the Fascinating Learning Factory is to eliminate the shortage of quality educational programming for ages 8 and up. We find, develop, fund and oversee production of educational programs for television, the Web and new technologies for all ages, and an emphasis on the need for a higher standard of children's programming. This includes the Internet and other new forms of content delivery, so that these programs can be seamlessly integrated into the lives of a diverse audience. We will help to develop support materials for classroom use to increase each program's value further.

Guerilla Guide to Politics

"Guerrilla Guide to Politics", a 40 part series on civic engagement and political participation intended to reverse the trend of non-involvement by our young people. Many organizations and individuals have expressed serious interest in this project and we are actively seeking funding to support the proposal and production of a new CPB initiative on American History and Civics. We are also developing "Our Fascinating Earth", a television series about natural science based on the award winning books and newspaper articles by Philip Seff, Ph.D. and Nancy Seff, M.Ed. A presentation videotape for this series has been produced and is available for use in fund raising. Other programs approved by the Learning Factory's Board include a series on world history called Hip Hop History and Spirit Voices, a documentary about the Blackfeet Indian nation. In addition, we are continually seeking programming ideas from outside sources and the Factory's Board of Directors will select which programs to pursue. The intent is to produce a steady stream of high quality, educational programming for many years to come.

Population(s) Served

Based on the book "HerStory" by Charlotte Waisman and Jill S. Teitjen, FLF is serving as Fiscal Sponsor to this critical project to bring the stories of American women who have made historic but unrecognized discoveries, inventions and changes to American civilization. Overlooked, ignored or cheated of their due, hundreds of brave and brilliant women have changed the course of history in myriad ways. Finally, the time has come to tell their stories. By way of Social Media, television, Podcasts and other methods of communication, we will bring these stories to life. As Dolores Herta said, "History is told, Herstory isn't." Until now.
