Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. What will the world look like in 2050? Where will advancements in science, technology, engineering, and math lead us? Our host takes viewers on a mind bending journey in search of these answers. Will we have personalized jet packs? How about childcare robots, artificial eyes, GPS shoes? Will there be space tourism in 2050? Is it possible to have colonies on the moon? Many technology experts think all these things are possible and, in some cases, even probable. Perhaps one day we will even have "downloadable dreams" to help us sleep better... Our host will visit with entrepreneurs who have started businesses developing futuristic ideas and products. Some of the most creative people in the world are science fiction writers and our host will visit with them as well. We will take a look at sci-fi movies of the past and see what "crazy" ideas have come to fruition. Our host will go to auto manufacturers to see where car technology is leading us...technology companies like Apple to see where consumer electronics are headed... doctors to hear what cures and inventions lie ahead... and inventors to learn what robots will be doing in 35 years. Anything and everything is possible when we use our imaginations...XPLORATION: EARTH 2050 spurs interest in children, teenagers, and adults to learn about how technology can make all of our lives better in the future.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Host Emily Callandrelli takes viewers on incredible journeys through space that will entertain and educate young viewers. Want to learn about gravity? How about watching our host wash her hair in zero gravity? Think volcanoes are spectacular? How about solar flares that shoot out from the sun at temperatures of 3.5 million degrees?! Is life as we know it possible on other planets? Experts debate the topic with differing opinions. Our host will visit various NASA facilities as we search for answers and learn about our universe. We will do shows about the stars, planets, comets, asteroids, moons, and much more. We will work with NASA to illustrate what we cannot see here on earth: the surfaces of planets, outer space weather, and galaxies millions of light years away. Want to know how the Mars Rover works? - we'll show you up close and personal. Every child who has looked up to the skies shares the wonderment expressed by 19th century poet and essayist, Ralph Waldo Emerson, who called the sky "the ultimate art gallery just above us." XPLORATION: OUTER SPACE captures the beauty of our majestic universe while teaching youngsters important lessons about science.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Our host explores the most spectacular places - on the earth, inside the earth, and above the earth - in this riveting earth science series. Ever wonder how a diamond is formed? Or how other gems and metals like gold come to be? Find out as our host goes to diamond mines, gold mines, and deep in the ocean on voyages of discovery. Every wonder how tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanoes happen? Our host will journey to active volcanoes and tell us what is happening inside the earth's burning hot core. Hurricanes, tornados, and other extreme weather form in the atmosphere...our host will take viewers to weather stations high in the mountains, such as Mount Washington in Vermont, where scientists give us the answers. Magnificent mountains, canyons, and glaciers will be on the agenda. Hubbard Glacier in Alaska is 76 miles long, and is North America's largest. It takes about 400 years for ice to traverse the length of it. Watch as our host melts the ice and takes a drink of 400 year old water! 19th Century philosopher George Santayana said "The earth has music for those who listen." XPLORATION: AWESOME EARTH will play that music for our young viewers who choose to listen.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. XPLORATION:ANIMAL SCIENCE takes viewers beyond the pretty pictures to discover how and why animals behave as they do. How is a cheetah able to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just three seconds? How does a polar bear smell its prey up to six miles away? How is a hummingbird able to flap its wings 70 times per second? XPLORATION: ANIMAL SCIENCE provides the answers. Animals have been uniquely engineered to perform tasks that aid in their survival. In fact, we humans can learn a thing or two from animal engineering. An airplane's wings borrow from our fine feathered friends and still do not perform the task as well. Not only are animals' bodies engineered, but their brains have been programmed. How is a bear able to smell prey up to six miles away? - its olfactory system, located in its brain, is far larger and more complex than humans - it's how they understand the world around them. XPLORATION:ANIMAL SCIENCE uses interviews with scientists and other animal experts to explain the amazing world of animal behavior. 3D animations take viewers inside the bodies of these creatures to better understand how things work.
