A Piece of the Action (Episode #304)

KQED Kids: Sat, Aug 29, 2015 -- 10:00 PM

Digit disappears while visiting his friends the Scritters, so Motherboard sends Matt, Jackie and Inez to investigate. They discover that Hacker has found a supply of Magnetite, and will use it to fill up a rocket capable of erasing all of Motherboard's memory disks. Can the kids stop Hacker before he collects a hundred percent of the Magnetite he needs to launch the rocket, or will Motherboard be shut down once and for all?

Crystal Clear (Episode #507)

KQED Kids: Thu, Aug 27, 2015 -- 10:00 PM

When Digit's systems go wonky, Motherboard sends him to the caves that house the Synchronizer, the beautiful crystal that keeps all borgs correctly timed. But before he can be put back in sync, he gets a glitch and tosses his crystal synchrometer into a tunnel and then flies off the wrong way down into a deep, dark chasm. Called in to help, Jackie, Matt and Inez meet Jules, the cave's timid guard, who teams up with them to find the synchrometer (using the unique geometry of crystals) and to find Digit, who's hopelessly lost. To thwart their plans, Hacker steals the Synchronizer. Can the kids figure out how to replace it and save their friend?

Return to Sensible Flats (Episode #117)

KQED Kids: Wed, Aug 26, 2015 -- 10:00 PM

(topic: Line Graphs) - Something is amiss with the bliss of Sensible Flats. The reservoir is dry. The town is out of water. And the folks who live there are leaving as fast as they can. But why? When the kids and Digit arrive, they use line graphs to reveal the true story of what happened - and all lines lead to Hacker, the newest resident of Sensible Flats. The Big Idea: You can use a line graph to tell a story about how things change, and make predictions.

Hacker has discovered an army of awesome creatures he can use to rule cyberspace, but they are carved in stone on the walls of the Pyramid of Jimaya. To bring the animals to life, he must steal the Sphere of Being, a magical orb closely guarded by three ghosts (Hacker's worst nightmare). How can he distract them so he can steal the Sphere? Opportunity knocks when he tricks Jules, recently hired as tour guide, into pushing the wrong button and falling, along with the kids and Creech, into an underground arena from which there is no escape! Confronted by the Jam Master, the guardian of the pyramid, and the Pyramid's three ghosts, the kids are told they can go free if they can overcome the ghosts in a game of Jimaya Jam. The game is like basketball except for a few small quirks: When Matt tries to dribble and move the ball across the court, it breaks! And he can't move from where he stands on the court once he receives it. Coach Jackie struggles with a game plan until the kids realize that diagramming her plays makes it a whole lot easier to follow them. Down to their last ball, stopping Hacker rests on their ability to diagram and execute the right play.
