Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital sub-channel 20.2)This series is designed to encourage young viewers to accept and value diversity. Each week the team of young Stargate trainees enter a new world. As they encounter cultures, races, and life forms foreign to any they have ever dreamed of, they also face life-threatening problems that require each member of the team to contribute to the well-being of all. As the young cadets learn to interact with and value "people" from different backgrounds and cultures, so too will the viewing audience. The trainees model many of the attitudes and behaviors that today's young people must learn in order to function well in a highly diverse society. The episodes emphasize getting along with others who are very different from oneself, working well with one's own team, and the individual character traits and abilities that go into the making of a good Stargate warrior and of course, a good person.

Age of Target Child Audience from 13 years to 16 years
Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital Channel 20.1)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. The series also succeeds in modeling all ages, ethnicities, and both genders as successful, knowledgeable individuals. Although there are right and wrong answers, there are right answers from people that every audience member can identify with. This is of too-often misunderstood importance for the targeted 13-16 year-old age. Identifying with a successful representative of your own group is extremely important. But it is also very important to learn respect for those outside your own group---and this series does that very well. Beyond the correct or incorrect answers presented by the series is a follow-up for deeper understanding. A question on evolution will lead to an expanded look at Charles Darwin in the way that touches on the pivotal Galapagos Island visit, and the fact that Darwin was 25 when he made the voyage there. Similarly, a question on government leads to a deeper look at James Madison, the man, and the revelation that he was the primary author of the US Constitution-something worth knowing for the targeted group.
