Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AWESOME ADVENTURES is a syndicated adventure travel show for tweens and teens that highlights topics like sports, animals, and music. Accompanied by host Anthony Montgomery (Star Trek Enterprise), in each episode a pair of teens hikes, bikes, parasails, and even sometimes rafts through exotic locales like Costa Rica, Iceland, and Belize. Using these beautiful countries as a backdrop, Awesome Adventures educates viewers about geography, zoology, history, and world culture through fun action-adventure segments. The overall tone of the show is very light and quite silly at times, but that's usually due to Montgomery's goofball antics.
