Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "The Coolest Places on Earth" is an exploration of cities (both modern and ancient), natural wonders, and cultural history, heavy with engaging content, fast-paced editing, and the accessible, conversational narration we have come to expect from Bellum Entertainment. The series' tone, information, and rich factual content reaches and serves the target 13-16-year-olds with a style that informs, supports, and encourages the kind of engaged thinking that have emerged from the Common Core State Standards. These standards, now adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia recognize the importance of engaging, relevant information about the world young people live in. This series' episode also touches key points in the National Geography standards. Each program features a minimum of three different locations, each separate geographically and historically. In the reviewed episode, which covered more than six locations, including contemporary New Zealand, historical Savannah, Georgia, and Sassi di Matera, Italy. The range of context in the episode's highlights is focused and diverse, allowing fascinating history and culture-pirates, ghosts, caves, and ice hotels in the reviewed episode--and striking contemporary visuals that put the information in context. For 13-16-year-olds, this matches neatly with the National Geography Standards (Geography for Life). The standards want to equip young people with knowledge, perspectives and information to engage in "Earth's diverse cultures and natural environments." This program does that nicely while supplying stories to hold the mind of the viewer. The "coolest places on earth" are defined by history and culture, not just by the striking visuals that accompany every segment. Beyond geography, it covers food, art, architecture, music, and cultural events like festivals.
