Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Virus Attack is a series that depicts pollution as DNA infected by viruses, which are infecting a city with the sole purpose of destroying it. The three main characters, David, Alice, and George represent the anti-viruses who are trying to help. David has become the power to ward off the evil viruses. His father,Professor Amaldi, has devoted his life to finding a solution to the evil gene of wickedness. It is an interesting metaphor for pollution. The series shows elements of courage, friendship, and problem solving. Although the concept is far-fetched, it brings enough science concepts to make it plausible. This would be an excellent venue to discuss the issues of pollution in our modern world. Concepts of what is causing pollution and how students can help to solve some of these problems are the issues young people face today. They very often feel powerless and this show's characters give them great role models to try and problem solve the issues of pollution. There are no mixed messages in this series
