Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital 39.1) Cubix: Robots for Everyone takes place in the year 2040 in Bubble Town where robots outnumber humans. The series centers around a 13 year old boy named Connor, his robot Cubix, and the members of a special club known as Botties. Each member of the Botties has their own robot with a unique characteristic. The robots are friendly, efficient and function in imaginative ways to help make Bubble Town a great place to live. But it's a good vs. evil world and Connor and the Botties learn lessons of right and wrong, teamwork, courage and problem solving during their adventures to thwart Dr. K.'s evil schemes to take control of Bubble Town's robots. Each member of the Botties faces life scenarios that commonly affect children today - feeling sad and alone, insecure and vulnerable, fear of failure, and overcoming uncertainties and phobias. Whether it is Connor facing a difficult initiation task in order to join the Botties; Chip dealing with his insecurities because he isn't as tall as the others; Charles' bragging; Cubix being blamed for something that he didn't do; Endruix' stage fright; or Antonio's jealousy during a competition that leads him to act like a spoilsport, the Botties face the same reallife conflicts and fears that children face. Throughout the entire series, the Botties learn important lessons about themselves including self-confidence, courage, loyalty, patience, humility and pride but they also learn the importance of perseverance, teamwork and embracing their differences to overcome obstacles. These lessons resonate as the Botties work together to defeat Dr. K. and his evil schemes.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital 39.4) This exciting series thrusts the viewer into the dramatic fray of the War of Independence, as seen through the eyes of two kids who've been taken in and given jobs as roving reporters by the Renaissance man of the Revolution, Ben Franklin. British teen Sarah sees both sides of the war and doesn't like either, while American teen Gregory is a passionate defender of freedom and liberty. French orphan Henri, who's also taken in by Ben, may be younger than his new "big brother" and "big sister", but he often sees most clearly. The series is packed with action, yet it confronts moral decisions head on. It's not concerned with the politics of history, but uses the drama of the events as a backdrop for the conflicts faced by its protagonists.
