Westborough – Math has gotten, in some cases, a bad rap. But two Westborough High School (WHS) graduates hope that with their new series that they have created for public television, they can show kids that math can actually be fun.

The show, “Odd Squad,” created by Tim McKeon and Adam Peltzman, for PBS KIDS, focuses on two young agents, Olive and Otto, who are part of the Odd Squad, an agency whose mission is to save the day whenever something unusual happens in their town.
