Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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 its 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 Towns 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 Antonios jealousy during a competition that leads him to act like a spoilsport, the Botties face the same real life 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.

The integration of core curriculum areas is a traditional goal in education and while ON THE SPOT doesn't support the deeper integration that would be done in a classroom, the energetic blend is a great example of taking curriculum out of their separate boxes and making them a uniform part of why knowledge can be important.

ON THE SPOT adopts a modified question and answer format familiar to broadcast network viewers, including the targeted age. The questions fall under curriculum core areas of knowledge in social studies, science, the arts, civics, and mathematics. The format allows for a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended, which is a serious asset. The integration of core curriculum areas is a traditional goal in education and while ON THE SPOT doesn't support the deeper integration that would be done in a classroom, the energetic blend is a great example of taking curriculum out of their separate boxes and making them a uniform part of why knowledge can be important.
