Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. One of the striking aspects of being an adolescent today is that whether they are urban or rural and regardless of income levels, there are some life choices that must be made as they grow and develop. These are the pre-teen and teenage boys and girls who are growing up in a real culturally diverse, highly mobile, dynamically technical, and multimedia society with a variety of opportunities, as well as a number of socioeconomic challenges.The goal of this program is to provide for adolescent boys and girls in the 13 to 16 year old age-group an opportunity to explore and learn about the technical, artistic, creative, business, and administrative careers that are a part of the motion picture, television, music video, and home entertainment industries, as well as to learn about some of the skills, personal attributes, techniques, and strategies needed to enter these fields. Our goal, while recognizing that many factors go into obtaining a position in any industry, is to provide the young audience with enough background so that their own career exploration, planning, education and decision-making can begin.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the Spot was created by the award-winning producers of the long running Educational and Informational show, Animal Atlas, now in its seventh successful season of national syndication. Last year, the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State Officers released the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt to set a national curriculum to bridge the standards gap between states. The content of On the Spot, a 30-minute E/I program for teens ages 13+, is based on the Common Core State Standards. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. Then, On the Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On the Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Cubix: Robots for Everyone takes place in the year 2040 in Bubble Town where robots outnumber humans. The series centers around a 13 year old boy named Connor, his robot Cubix, and the members of a special club known as Botties. Each member of the Botties has their own robot with a unique characteristic. The robots are friendly, efficient and function in imaginative ways to help make Bubble Town a great place to live. But it's a good vs. evil world and Connor and the Botties learn lessons of right and wrong, teamwork, courage and problem solving during their adventures to thwart Dr. K.'s evil schemes to take control of Bubble Town's robots. Each member of the Botties faces life scenarios that commonly affect children today - feeling sad and alone, insecure and vulnerable, fear of failure, and overcoming uncertainties and phobias. Whether it is Connor facing a difficult initiation task in order to join the Botties; Chip dealing with his insecurities because he isn't as tall as the others; Charles' bragging; Cubix being blamed for something that he didn't do; Endruix' stage fright; or Antonio's jealousy during a competition that leads him to act like a spoilsport, the Botties face the same reallife conflicts and fears that children face. Throughout the entire series, the Botties learn important lessons about themselves including self-confidence, courage, loyalty, patience, humility and pride but they also learn the importance of perseverance, teamwork and embracing their differences to overcome obstacles. These lessons resonate as the Botties work together to defeat Dr. K. and his evil schemes.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the Spot was created by the award-winning producers of the long running Educational and Informational show, Animal Atlas, now in its seventh successful season of national syndication. Last year, the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State Officers released the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt to set a national curriculum to bridge the standards gap between states. The content of On the Spot, a 30-minute E/I program for teens ages 13+, is based on the Common Core State Standards. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. Then, On the Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On the Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer.
