Children’s Scrappy News Service The Children's Scrappy News service (http://scrappynews.com/) is the first news service run by kids for kids in India, solving India’s biggest problems with design-thinking, scrappy skills, interviewing stars, heroes, entrepreneurs and asking kids (their parents, grandparents) from across India to send in their problems to be solved. Every episode would be structured around solving a problem in a community somewhere in India. Parents, families, send in the problem to be solved by postcard, tweet, letter. Kid reporters in a newsroom made of junk (and once-loved things) present the problem and interview famous people to get insight into how to solve it. Then, getting to the bottom of the problem, kids go out of the newsroom and into the streets to find out ‘why the problem exists’ interviewing everyone they meet. The show format has segments to interview anyone and everyone who has a job to ask about the skills you need to get that job. There’s a giant red post box where kids send their ideas for the next episode. At the end of every show, kids report on what they found and inspire millions of kids to take action by building newsrooms, becoming reporters, sending in their problems to be solved or downloading content to learn skills. First Episode: Plan Bee (http:/ /www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4v1yneD0EA) More updates on Scrappy news are available on their facebook page everyday.
