Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Look Kool is a program designed for children 6 to 9. On every episode, the male host, Hamza, interacts with an animated robot cat, a historical guest (played by Hamza in costume), children, and other animated creatures. The basic premise of the show is the idea that math is everywhere and each episode includes real children who help Hamza solve mathematical or scientific curiosities. Look Kool works hard to highlight for learners the link between the lesson and real life in order to activate and keep the children's interest. Live action children in real world settings put the lesson of the episode into action by seeking its value within everyday life. Look Kool is a highly educational program and speaks to the curious minds and active imaginations of elementary age kids and encourages the transfer of knowledge out into one's everyday life.
