Catch the Science Bug

Kim Bent has been teaching science programs through Catch the Science Bug since 2000. She was looking for a means to share her love and knowledge of science with young children. Rex Trailer, the former host of Boomtown, suggested she host a children's science television show.  Rex and Kim made the pilot and Kim started using clips of it in her classroom presentations.

In addition to teaching, Kim is producing a children's science series for PBS Rhode Island also called Catch the Science Bug.  Air dates can be found on the PBS RI website by searching their TV schedule for Catch the Science Bug. The programming can be seen via cable providers in areas of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Look for WSBE in the channel line-up. Clips from the series can be seen at on the Science Files pages and on the TV Schedule page.

Kim has always had a natural love of science. She has a B.S. and M.S. in environmental geosciences from Boston College. Prior to starting Catch the Science Bug, Kim worked as an environmental scientist and a public high school science teacher.

In 2004 Kim was recognized as one of the up and coming business leaders by Worcester Business Journal in the 40 Under 40 Awards because of this work.  Other work recognitions include:
