About Hero Elementary
Hero Elementary is a school for budding superheroes, where kids learn to master their innate powers, like flying and teleportation, while exploring science along the way. Lucita Sky, AJ Gadgets, Sara Snap and Benny Bubbles, led by their quirky and enthusiastic teacher, Mr. Sparks, work together to help people, solve problems and try to make the world a better place. When their imperfect powers aren’t up to the task, they look to their other powers — the superpowers of science — to help them investigate, observe, make predictions and figure out a solution.
The series aims to give children ages 4 to 7 the tools to solve problems by thinking and acting like scientists to ignite their natural curiosity and empathy. The goals of the series are to:
- Learn science through everyday situations and relationships.
- Apply science inquiry practices, engineering design practices and science content knowledge to solve meaningful problems in the world around them.
- Interact with one another in ways that model the skills and processes of literacy and language, as well as developmentally appropriate social/emotional skills.
- Use curiosity and active approaches to problem solving, mirroring the active, playful, discovery-oriented lives of our viewers.
