KQED Kids: Fri, Jun 28, 2013 -- 9:30 PM

Hacker infects Motherboard with a new virus -- one that causes her to make cyber-citizens act mean.

Why does glamorous Gollywood go ga-ga when a nobody like Mister Z skips town? It's a fiendish Hacker scheme, of course. Because of a poison pen campaign devised by Hacker, Mister Z feels worthless and unwanted. He decides to leave Gollywood, taking his zeroes with him. The sudden disappearance of the number zero causes confusion and chaos, exactly as Hacker planned. As Hacker becomes the biggest star in Gollywood, the kids and Digit must show Mister Z he does indeed have a value by demonstrating the importance of the number zero.

KQED Kids: Tue, Jun 25, 2013 -- 9:30 PM

(topic: Algebraic Variables) - The Hacker challenges Jackie, Matt and Inez to a contest on cyber-wide television! In order to prove to all of Cyberspace that Hacker's not as powerful or smart as he seems - the kids return to Topsy-Turvy Island on the Northern Frontier for the contest. Their mission is to power up a Mini-Wreaker using cyber-fireflies of varying power before the island turns inside out at sunset. The kids must use algebraic equations to determine how many Gleamers - and how much power - they'll need. The Big Idea: When you use a letter to stand in for a number that repeats or changes in a problem, you can simplify the arithmetic and make the problem easier to solve.

(topic: 2- & 3-D Geometry) - Pursued by Hacker, Digit lands on cybersite Eureeka, where his mission is to find Professor Archimedes - the maker of the encryptor chip, a unique computer chip that can fix Motherboard. But Archimedes is nowhere to be found - only a pile of two-dimensional rods where his chip factory should be. The kids arrive to help, and discover that by linking the two-dimensional rods together into certain geometrical patterns they actually create a surprising three-dimensional shape that leads directly to unraveling the mystery of Archimedes' strange disappearance. The Big Idea: When you follow simple rules to make flat geometrical shapes (two- dimensional), and join them together, you can discover new shapes that, instead of staying flat, rise up to make three-dimensional objects.

For the first time ever, the CyberSquad's friend Fluff is participating, and invites his pals Matt, Jackie, Inez and Digit to join him in the impressive Penguin March. They head to the Ice Palace, where the gifts are made and where magic snowflakes are sprinkled on the penguins so they can fly. But Hacker, up to his usual ruinous tricks, doesn't want a happy holiday (let alone happy little borgs) so he creates a giant ditch in front of the Ice Palace and traps all the penguins in its icy depths! The CyberSquad must get the penguins ice-shoes so they can climb out before midnight, but how many do they need? With too many to count, the answer lies in the kids' ability to sample the penguin population to make a close estimate. Can the CyberSquad save the penguins and their favorite holiday too??
