Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. In order to best develop the skills and values that will produce "socially conscious" and productive future adults, fostering social and emotional competencies in our children is crucial. Social and emotional skills -- such as confidence, courage, loyalty, teamwork and problem solving -- provide an important knowledge base upon which appropriate behaviors can be developed. Imaginary environments provide children with a safe mechanism to witness these "pro-social" behaviors. Cubix provides just such a framework. The series tackles life scenarios that commonly affect children today. The educational objectives of Cubix include the reinforcement of ageappropriate interpersonal skills, the development of self-confidence, courage and personal responsibility. Cubix exposes children to these lessons within an entertaining, non-threatening imaginary environment. The Botties and their robots tackle personal and community adversities in creative story lines. Within this framework, children can see age-appropriate problem-solving strategies and learn to model the appropriate behavior. Through the Botties' experiences, viewers learn to overcome self-esteem and social competency issues, demonstrating to children that self-confidence, courage and resilience are necessary tools for problem solving and establishing good interpersonal relationships. Moreover, the characters inspire and promote altruistic behaviors, such as community participation, support, resilience, tolerance and leadership skills.
