Space Racers

Animation 1: Where are We? - Story: Eager to emulate their favorite television hero, Captain Cosmos, cadets Eagle, Robyn and Hawk zoom off into space - only to encounter powerful solar flares that hurtle them down onto the surface of an unfamiliar planet. Stranded there until space conditions clear up, they must use their keenest observational and analytic skills to try and determine the composition of the soil and rocks, weather conditions and various other factors, hoping to figure out where they are in the Solar System and how to get back home... only to discover, in the end, that they've been back on Earth the entire time. Curriculum Focus: Exploration and Observation of our surroundings, resulting in conclusions being modified as the episode progresses. Interstitial 1: "Space News 1: Tour of International Space Station". Animation 2: Starling DSV - Story: Sandpiper is returning from an outer space mission when her rockets fail upon re-entry, and she splashes into the ocean and sinks. The teachers and students try to plan a rescue mission, but all are too big for Coot's smaller scale prototype of a new deep space rescue sub - all except for Starling! The brave junior cadet submerges into the deep sea to trace Sandpiper's path way down to the ocean floor. But with Sandpiper's rockets disabled, Starling must somehow find a way to rescue her. Will she be able to use her observational skills - and maybe some discarded rocket boosters - to build an evacuation sled to bring Sandpiper to safety? Curriculum Focus: Collecting data and drawing conclusions through observation. Interstitial 2: "Space Quiz 1: Space vs. Oceans". Character Bio: Eagle

History Detectives : Ventriloquist Dummy/Witch's House/Poems

Ventriloquist Dummy - An African-American woman in Brooklyn, New York, has her father's black ventriloquist dummy, "Sam." Her father, John Cooper, was the first famous African-American ventriloquist. In a time of minstrel stereotypes, did "Sam" help transform how Americans viewed race in the early 20th century? How was this dummy created and was it meant to be a protest against racial prejudice? Witch's House - Could a house in Essex County, Massachusetts, have once belonged to an accused witch? HISTORY DETECTIVES heads to New England to research the likelihood with local historians and a descendant of the accused witch, Martha Carrier, who was executed by hanging in 1692 during the infamous Salem Witch Trials. Might the woman who was called the "Queen of Hell" have owned this home? Poems - In the first half of the 20th century, nearly 250,000 Chinese immigrants attempted to enter the United States. Because of discrimination against Chinese and laws meant to impede their passage, most were detained and interrogated on Angel Island, America's West Coast immigration center in San Francisco. The experience of these immigrants is documented in hundreds of poems that have been carved into the walls of the Angel Island detention center. Many of these have been translated, but little is known about the authors. Kathleen Wong, a second-generation Chinese American, believes that her grandfather and great-grandfather spent time on the island and that her great-grandfather may have died there. She knows little about her ancestors' experience on Angel Island and their possible connection with the poems. HISTORY DETECTIVES investigates the story of her family's passage to the United States to find out if any of the poems were written by her ancestors.
