Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Produced primarily for the 13 16 target audience, XPLORATION Weird But True will inspire and educate audiences of all ages. This series, produced in partnership with National Geographic Kids, is hosted by the brother-sister team of Charlie and Kirby Engleman. Charlie is an Ecologist and Kirby is an Artist, and they are both National Geographic Junior Explorers. Together, they share a common curiosity to explore and understand the science behind the world and its wildlife. In this series, Charlie and Kirby explore a new topic each week to uncover the Weird But True science at play all around us. With a mix of graphics and handmade art, this EI series is fun, playful and educational. For instance, in the first episode, our hosts are curious to learn about asteroids and so they set off to explore the biggest meteor crater in the US and meet a real-life meteorite hunter. They also try their hand at tracking down space rocks. Along the way, they discover that meteor crash sites can turn into quicksand. On XPLORATION Weird But True, Charlie and Kirby inspire teens to question the HOW and WHY behind the way our world works, and encourage them to discover answers to their most curious questions. XPLORATION Weird But True is a half hour weekly EI series produced with the intention of increasing and expanding our target audience interest in the field of STEM education. This series will help teens and viewers of all ages learn to question the world around them.

But engineers arent the only scientists looking toward nature. We will also meet with biologists studying the behavior patterns of ants; architects who design living buildings and roboticists who are making their designs bigger, stronger, and faster based on animals.

Host and Marine Biologist, Danni Washington, exudes energy as she relates how current technology 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 arent the only scientists looking toward nature. We will also meet with biologists studying the behavior patterns of ants, architects who design living buildings and roboticists who are making their designs bigger, stronger, and faster based on animals. This series will show kids how understanding nature can help them make the next great discovery. After all, nature knows best.
