Kate, a writer of science books for elementary schools, lives on a farm in Ontario, Canada. In both seasons of Take a Look, she has invited a young boy to spend a few summer weeks. In the process, Kate gives a few valuable lessons about various fields of science.
All episodes of Take a Look include a field segment (outside the farm setting) to further develop the scientific concept. In most shows, Kate gives instructions for scientific projects/crafts that the young viewing audience can do for themselves.
