What Are You a Nerd For?

Everyone’s a nerd for something, but at WCTE we’re Nerds for many things!

First, sign up to Be a PBS Nerd to share your inner nerd. Then, create or join a PBS Nerd Challenge or PBS Nerd Event that speaks to who you are, and what you are passionate about—whatever that may be! ​

Whether it’s making craft beer, running a 5K, hosting a Hamilton karaoke party, or binge-watching Downton Abbey, the nerd world is your oyster.

Sign up now to Be a PBS Nerd and create your own PBS Nerd Challenge or host your own PBS Nerd Event!

What are PBS Nerd Challenges and PBS Nerd Events?

A PBS Nerd Challenge is a personal challenge you create to invite friends and family to take on, such as dressing up for a day as a character from your favorite PBS show.

A PBS Nerd Event is an in-person event you host and invite others to attend, such as a watch party for your favorite show.
