Kids’ radio station teaches transport

If you’re trying to work and home school at the same time, how about almost combining both and teaching the children about roads?

You won’t have to do it yourself, because national children’s radio station Fun Kids, which broadcasts on DAB, has put together a series of features which it’s including in its regular programming and hosting on its website

 “Are We There Yet” is a 16-part series which covers the history of the road, how they are built, and how digital technology helps keep drivers moving.  It was funded by a Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious grant and supported by ITS (UK) and some of its members.

“Having this content to play at such a vital time for children’s broadcasting is fantastic,” added Fun Kids Managing Director, Gregory Watson (pictured). “We launched the initiative with ITS (UK) back at Traffex at the NEC last April and I’m very grateful for all their help to get the series on air.”

Fun Kids is also running a series about the  design of roads and their environment called “What a great road”, thanks to a grant from the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund.
