In each episode Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distraction, judgment and interpersonal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure where Bunji and Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development as Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills.

This program will inspire and educate audiences of all ages. Host and marine biologist, Danni Washington, exudes energy as she relates how technology all around us was inspired by nature and how modern innovators are continuing with this practice. We will whirl around in airplanes inspired by birds, and in helicopters influenced by the dragonfly, and even jump from a few such vehicles to illustrate how wingsuits were invented based on the flying squirrel! But engineers aren't the only scientists looking toward nature. We will also meet with the biologists studying the behavior patterns of ants; architects who design "living building"; and roboticists who are making their designs bigger, stronger and faster based on animals. This series will help kids to understand how getting outside and taking a look around can help them make the next great discovery.
