Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [13.2 - This TV] "Whaddyado" is designed to educate, inform, inspire and entertain teens, while providing opportunities to learn life lessons they would otherwise not be open to receive. Teens are exposed to real life situations during reenactments where developing important life saving skills is examined. By exposing the teen viewer to perilous situations which have already occurred, then, using interviews with the participants and instructions from experts, they are shown what the proper reaction should be when faced with similar life-threatening circumstances. The show also works to minimize the viewer's belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teens. In the show's "moral dilemma" segment, teens are given a scenario which raises moral questions for which they're provided an expert's analysis of the costs and benefits of various courses of action, tackling the challenge head on. All in all, the program works to help develop the moral fiber of our nation's teens, each segment welcoming the opportunity for teens who seek to define themselves.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [13.1] Host, science educator, and leader in the field of professional educational training, Steve Spangler, encourages the discovery of scientific concepts through experiments viewers can do at home. With a fun, relaxed attitude, Steve will take viewers through step-by-step demonstrations of do-it-yourself experiments that amaze but which also relate back to solid principles of science. For instance, Steve Spangler became nationally-known with a video of him dropping the candy Mentos into a bottle of diet soda. It erupts in a geyser of soda. Spangler demonstrates the experiment and also explains the science of why, on a molecular level, the soda reacts that way to the candy.
