Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This show is an action-comedy about a boy who transforms into the world's smallest superhero to fight microscopic villains too small for the naked eye. Each episode takes place in two worlds: In the human world Oscar tries to live the life of a normal boy, keeping his identity as Nanoboy a secret while solving conflicts like peer pressure, and exam stress. In the Micro-Comos, the tiny world of cells, molecules and atoms, a battle of good versus evil rages each week as Nanoboy, tinier than the average cell, takes on bad-to-the-bone-bacteria while trying to survive the biggest challenge of all, being a 10-year-old boy. In this world Oscar/Nanoboy encounters bigger than life problems such as Deranged Proteins and Amazonian Amoebas, and with the help of his Nano-team he reforms a flu virus and a goofy brain cell. In resolving crimes in the Micro-World, Nanoboy encounters solutions that he can bring back to solve human world problems. The show presents information across a range of scientific and technological subject areas including botany, biology, computer science, genetics, geology, meteorology, entomology, ecology, astronomy and more. Through observation, children gain the motivation to use learning, knowledge, and action to transform themselves to meet challenges in their own lives.

A Golden Apple Award is presented to a deserving teacher each week. Each Golden Apple that was awarded during April and May was featured on the station's newscasts. The Golden Apple Winner of the Year was covered as well. During the presentation of this award, children are given the opportunity to appear on television when they are interviewed and asked questions about their teachers.
