America's Largest Classroom

WQPT along with PBS serves as America's largest classroom, the country's largest stage for the arts and a trusted window to the world that is available to everyone. Our programs help viewers in our region understand the latest front-page headlines, cutting-edge scientific discoveries, natural disasters and even the value of what's in their attics.

Research confirms that public television's programming for children builds critical skills that are essential for success in school. With the help of PBS Kids characters such as Elmo and Whyatt of Super Why!, abstract symbols transform into letters and letters into words. With the help of Curious George, Buddy of Dinosaur Train and The Cat in the Hat, children learn more than how to count; they learn the fundamentals of geology, physics and biology—opening doors of opportunity for all children, even those who can't attend pre-school.

WQPT continues to provide more programming, educational opportunities and information to our viewers in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. Thanks for tuning into WQPT—your local PBS station.
