Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Xploration Nature Knows Best is produced for the 13-16 target audience. 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.

On her way through the meadow Maya and her many friends teach children valuable lessons about supporting the weak, learning from each other and appreciating different perspectives on life.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Chica Show features a 5 year old baby chick that spends her days with her parents in their costume shop. The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. 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.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Due to a technical problem stemming from Telemundo's network feed, episodes of Nina's World, The Chica Show and La Abeja Maya that aired on October 7, 2017 and October 8, 2017 did not have the E/I bug for the entirety of the program. The E/I bug was present for a portion of the programs. The issue was caught and corrected by KTRE, and KTRE, in conjunction with the Telemundo network, have taken ameliorative steps to avoid this error from occurring in the future. Due to scheduling issues stemming from the Telemundo network, one episode of Nina's World was unable to be aired in a second home timeslot. The station is proactively working with Telemundo to ensure regularity in its provision of E/I programming, and the station will provide an average of E/I programming in Q1 2018 to ensure its six month average is sufficient. KTRE participates in the Neighborhood Weathernet program. Weather stations are installed at schools throughout our viewing area. Students observe, record and analyze weather data. Statistics from different schools are used in our daily weathercasts.
