Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. In accordance with the 1990 Children's Television Act (ATC) intended to increase educational and informational programming for children on television, Aqua Kids clearly meets the goals of providing children with a television show that meets CORE requirements of the FCC as follows: 1. Aqua Kids website that can be easily accessed by parents and provides a clear description of the types of programming offered. It also provides a listing of when shows are aired on broadcasting stations through the USA. Advanced notice of programming is available to parents and consumers by the website. 2. Aqua Kids provides CORE programming in the area of biology and specifically the ecosystem related to the ocean, its tributaries and estuaries. Children can learn about the resources of the oceans and how protection of oceans is necessary to present and future generations. Not only does the show teach biological topics, but it aims to enrich children's lives by making them aware of future generations, the role they play now, and for generations into the future, with the biggest ecosystem on earth, the oceans. Each episode provides information related to a specific topic and gives an educational approach to understand the topic related to the entire ecosystem of the earth. Each episode is topic specific and focuses on a topic that can be informational in a 30 minute time span to stay in the bounds of a child's attention span. 3. Aqua Kids uses the technique of near peer mentors i.e., children to teach other children. Each episode employs Aqua Kids who ask questions and experience first hand the experience of the topic. For example, children might feed Manatees to experience the graceful, gentle nature of the animal and learn about their biology or dig through piles of silt dredged from the ocean depths to look for shark teeth to understand how shark continually grow new teeth and loose old rows of teeth.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. In accordance with the 1990 Children's Television Act (ATC) intended to increase educational and informational programming for children on television, Aqua kids clearly meets the goals of providing children with a television show that meets CORE requirements of the FCC as follows: 1. Aqua Kid website that can be easily accessed by parents and provides a clear description of the types of programming offered. It also provides a listing of when shows are aired on broadcasting stations through the USA. Advanced notice of programming is available to parents and consumers by the website. 2. Aqua Kids provides CORE programming in the area of biology and specifically the ecosystem related to the ocean, its tributaries and estuaries. Children can learn about the resources of the oceans and how protection of oceans is necessary to present and future generations. Not only does the show teach biological topics, but it aims to enrich children's lives by making them aware of future generations, the role they play now, and for generations into the future, with the biggest ecosystem on earth, the oceans. Each episode provides information related to a specific topic and gives an educational approach to understand the topic related to the entire ecosystem of the earth. Each episode is topic specific and focuses on a topic that can be informational in a 30 minute time span to stay in the bounds of a child's attention span. 3. Aqua Kids uses the technique of near peer mentors i.e., children to teach other children. Each episode employs Aqua Kids who ask questions and experience first hand the experience of the topic. For example, children might feed Manatees to experience the graceful, gentle nature of the animal and learn about their biology or dig through piles of silt dredged from the ocean depths to look for shark teeth to understand how shark continually grow new teeth and loose old rows of teeth.
