Space Racers

Season 1, Episode 14 of 26

Animation 1: Fearless Flyers - Story: The cadets are preparing flights of exploration for their vacation. While Robyn and Eagle pick Venus, Hawk and Raven plan something much bolder, where few Racers dare to go: they'll visit some unexplored areas of the Solar System's outer planets. While visiting the Academy map room to prepare for their trip, Coot shows them an ancient map of the outer planets with scary names for some unexplored regions: the Fog of Confusion, Giant Protector of Uranus, and the Evil Winds of Neptune. Undaunted, Raven and Hawk make it to the far side of the Solar System but encounter unusual occurrences, just as predicted by the map! Will they be able to identify the mysteries as natural phenomena, or will the "Evil Winds of Neptune" sweep them away into the darkness of space? Curriculum Focus: Ongoing learning - developing hypotheses, modeling flexible thinking and being open to unexpected discoveries. Interstitial 1: "Imagining Unexplored Space". Animation 2: Hawk's Valentine - Story: On Valentine's Day, Hawk receives a mysterious, old-fashioned card with no addressee... only a cryptic poem inviting the recipient to meet on the far side of the Moon. Who could this secret admirer be? Robyn, Eagle and Raven try to help Hawk solve the mystery of the sender. Analyzing the card using their senses and investigative skills, they trace it back to Sandpiper! But who was the intended recipient...? And will the Racers bring the seemingly lovelorn couple back together for one more date? Curriculum Focus: Observation - use any of the senses or a combination of multiple senses to gain information.
