Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Terrific Trucks is a live-action series that follows the exploits of five self-driving, heavy-duty construction trucks. They include Tork, the dump truck, Stotz, the flatbed, Dug, the digger, Blinker, the mini-digger, and Sparky, the front-end loader. The trucks reside in a fully equipped truck yard/rock quarry and work as a team on various building projects that require planning, collaboration and implementation. Each truck brings specific skills to the group. They get challenging job assignments from Mr. Bill Board, a digital outdoor screen that outlines and diagrams the problem to be solved. By allocating the role each truck will perform during the project, the group merges those unique skills to fulfill their respective assignments. Unexpected problems that could compromise their success-- such as the weather, broken truck parts, or personal conflicts between the trucks--- are addressed and overcome so the job can be completed.
