Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On an episode by episode basis, Oscar, in the role of his alterego, Nanoboy, harnesses and uses the power of science and technology to save his world from the meanest and ugliest villains around. In doing so, he teaches target viewers the elements of science and enticingly demonstrates how knowledge can be used to solve difficult problems and meet important aims. This learning becomes all the more impactful because young viewers can readily relate to Oscar. He's bright and fun-loving, and like all kids, he's not perfect. Oscar is small for his age, athletically challenged, and perhaps even a bit nerdy. But when Oscar and his friends are faced with peril, Oscar magically transforms from "everykid" into amazing Nanoboy. Through observation, viewers gain the motivation to use learning, knowledge, and action to transform themselves to meet challenges in their own lives. The target audience for "Nanoboy" is made up of five to ten year-old boys and girls across a broad spectrum of racial, ethnic, and socio-economic categories. The level of educational content is varied so as to be interesting and meaningful to children throughout the age range -- challenging younger viewers and reinforcing learning for older ones. The general learning goal and discrete educational objectives are fully integrated with the story-line, characters and settings that make up "Nanoboy." By focusing on Nanoboy's challenges and the amazing ways he meets them, the series provides young viewers with a non-threatening arena from which to observe and learn from the actions of others. Learning is natural, captivating and becomes part of the overall fun and excitement of the series.
