Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Mystery Hunters is an excellent example of a children's program that is innovative and empowering. Through critical observation, analytical thinking and scientific testing, the series encourages children to question the world around them. Through both the travel aspect and investigation of ancient myths and mysteries, there is a profound focus on history, culture, geography and international customs. The Mystery Hunters are Araya and Christina, regular kids with inquisitive minds, who travel the globe to investigate the sites and delve into the tales which have baffled people throughout the ages - looking for the Loch Ness Monster, unraveling a smelly mummy, searching for Princess Anastasia, and learning the true story of King Tut. Armed with video cameras and their instincts, they gather facts and meet the experts, debunking common myths and offering explanations for legends, spooky stories, and unexplained phenomena. They use critical thinking and scientific reasoning to show that things are not always what they seem. Back at the Discovery Mystery Lab, Doubting Dave, the resident skeptical scientist, challenges viewers to send in their own mysteries, and then tackles the questions with experiments and logical explanations.
