Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Finding Stuff Out" is a lively science-oriented series which, instead of imposing adult notions on kids about what they should know, gives them what they want: answers to the questions that matter to them the most! Educational studies show that learning that involves strong emotions, especially humor, stays with us the longest. Finding Stuff Out uses an approach that is funny and witty - never earnest - to encourage kids to watch and to help them remember what they learn. To heighten that fun, entertaining experience, it will also be highly visual, using energetic, youthful hosts, colorful in-studio demonstrations, eye-catching video packs, and simple yet playful animation. "Finding Stuff Out" will further relate to its audience by using real children, both in the studio and in "streeters". It all adds up to a fun and insightful show that isn't about science per se, but rather a show that uses science and some exciting situations to fascinate children by answering the myriad questions that kids have about the world around them.
