Space Racers

Season 1, Episode 26 of 26

Animation 1: Communication Breakdown - Story: Things are suddenly going haywire around Stardust Bay: electrical outages, power surges, TV channels changing themselves. Coot is racing himself ragged trying to fix and tinker, but to no avail. A solar storm is the root of the problem, Headmaster Crane determines, and the Space Racers must travel to the Academy's communications satellite in space to attach a special shield. Problem is, along the way a series of misunderstandings leads to a complete breakdown in dialogue between Eagle, Robyn and Hawk... so there they are in space, trying to restore communications - and they're not communicating! If they hope to save the day, somehow they must find a way to get past their differences and work as a team. Curriculum Focus: A Team Approach - Collaborating with a team and then sharing what one has learned is often useful. Interstitial 1: "MD Science Center 8 - Lego Communication". Animation 2: Total Eclipse (Encore) - Story: With the first solar eclipse in 26 years looming, Stardust Space Academy is preparing for the "Eclipse Run," a tradition wherein two random students are chosen to race to the Moon and back during the eclipse. As the big day draws near, two Racers are picked: Eagle and... little Starling?!! Eagle is both amused and aghast at the lack of competition. But Starling is determined to compete, so she engages Robyn to tutor her. Thinking the race will be a piece of cake, Eagle lets his guard down and begins to slack off... until the solar eclipse strikes, plunging the race into darkness - an event that overconfident Eagle did not bother to prepare for. Curriculum Focus: Exploration and Investigation - we obtain information and learn new things about the world when we learn to ask the right questions in our search for answers. Interstitial 2: "Music Video 2: Rocket Science (Encore)". Character Bio: Headmaster Crane.
