Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In this context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem solving. How do kids get the "right" information and make proper use of it? What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one weigh alternatives? How are decisions best arrived at? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good. In an enticing new world filled with excitement, mystery and danger, "Magi Nation" addresses these vital learning goals. Tony and Edyn along with their human and decidedly nonhuman colleagues model their successful, and sometimes less than successful, attempts to analyze difficult situations, set appropriate goals, and creatively seek solutions to the dire dilemmas in which they find themselves. In the course of a series of intriguing codes, riddles and other puzzles that Tony and Edyn are presented with along the way, viewers are furthermore given the engaging opportunity to not only observe others go through the problem solving cycle, but to make use of their unique knowledge base and burgeoning problem solving skills to address conundrums on their own. Magi-Nation aired on the secondary digital stream 27.2.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Each week the Stargate explorers enter a new world. About the only things they can be sure of are that they will encounter new and vastly different life forms and cultures, that they will face problems that require functioning smoothly as a team, and that the team is only as strong as the character and abilities of its individual members. At its core, Stargate Infinity explores issues, attitudes, and behaviors important to learning how to get along with others, whether those others are from different races, cultures, and species, or from their own team of trainees. The young explorers serve as models for the young audience. As the cadets learn hard lessons about such things as trying to see the world from the perspective of other cultures, the positive benefits in diversity, or how to mesh their own strengths and abilities with those of others on the team, so too do young viewers. Each episode examines fundamental issues about how and why to get along with others who are very different from oneself, and about the kinds of abilities and strength of character necessary to be a Stargate Explorer and a good person. Stargate Infinity aired on the secondary digital stream 27.2.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Liberty's Kids is an exciting series that 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. Liberty's Kids aired on the station's secondary digital stream 27.2.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. In each episode, an attractive dance instructor demonstrates a series of new and demanding Hip-hop dance steps, challenging each pair of contestants to incorporate those moves into their own dance routine. During the portrayal of the demonstration of the new steps, the competitors practicing of those steps, and the dance competition itself, viewers are encouraged to participate in the action by learning the steps and getting up and dancing along with the contestants. Frequent comments by both the program host and by the dance instructor are designed to engage viewers in the activity. In addition, by incorporating techniques such as split screens, pop-up screens, and rolling text messages, dance is associated with exercise and good health throughout the program, and viewers are continually encouraged to get up and dance. (It should be noted that Hip-hop demands a great deal of energy, endurance, and skill to master. It is an ideal device to engage young viewers in relatively vigorous physical activity). Both on-screen talent and pop-up screens promote participation in dance by linking it to various other sports (i.e., via improved balance, coordination, timing), to good health, and to increased energy and attractiveness. Episodes also include occasional references to historical and cultural facts related to dance. Anything that makes dance attractive and encourages young viewers to get up and move, is considered fair game. Dance Revolution aired on the secondary digital stream 27.2.

Four youngsters (Cake, Benjamin, Miracle and Amy) team up to produce a weekly, local access how-to-do-it TV program.

The characters' day-to-day lives influence what each week's craft will be. Their on-camera demonstrations provide viewers with step-by-step information about how to execute the various craft projects. Their interpersonal interactions model highly positive social behaviors.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Liberty's Kids is an exciting series that 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. Liberty's Kids will air on the station's secondary digital stream 27.2.
