A Broom of One's Own (#409) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

When Wicked puts a CyberSquad Seal of Approval on her new "Wickedy Brooms," it's up to Matt, Jackie, Inez and Digit to make sure the brooms are as good as Wicked claims. They try them out, figuring out their speed - how far the different brooms go in a given amount of time. The brooms pass the test - but Wicked doesn't. They must race to Control Central and save Motherboard before Wicked's scheme succeeds! And where's Hacker? And what will he do when he finds out Wicked is trying to take over his turf? EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: You can use speed - the distance you travel in a unit of time - to tell how far you will go in any amount of time.

It's that time of the year again: Reboot Day - when all of cyberspace celebrates a fresh start and all the bots make Reboot resolutions! It's Delete's favorite holiday, but Hacker is having none of it; he's in a foul mood because he's low on energy. Fortunately for him, the little windy town of Bottowa has a powerful energy source that'll put new pep in his step. Unfortunately for the Bottowans, this power source is what raises the big ball at the stroke of midnight on Reboot Eve (like dropping the big ball in Times Square, but in reverse), and their celebration is being broadcast live across Cyberspace! When Hacker steals the energy source, Delete is so upset that he decides to stay behind and join forces with the CyberSquad, who have come to help the poor little town from Virtual World-wide humiliation. To do this, they'll try to harness the natural power of the wind and build a giant windmill. But will they be able to finish it all by the stroke of midnight? And will Delete decide to stay in Bottawa forever?

Creech invites her good friends the CyberSquad to Tikiville to show off the amazing new bike path that has everyone driving their fantastic new bikes and trikes rather than cars. Everyone is having fun - even Hacker is joyriding on his bike (and if that isn't suspicious, Jackie doesn't know what is). Inez, who cares deeply for animals, soon realizes the bike path has divided the habitats of many of Tikiville's cute, cuddly creatures. Creature families have been split up, and the busy bike path is preventing animals from reaching their food and water sources. Inez feels the bike path should be shut down, but Creech doesn't want to take away the benefits the path has created for her community. The disagreement drives a wedge between the two good friends. Will they find a compromise? Will a map of the area help Inez and her friends reunite the cute critters to their families and homes? And what is that sneaky Hacker up to?!

Kids in glamorous Gollywood have no safe place to play. When they discover an empty lot that can be converted to a park, they have only one opponent: Hacker. He wants the lot for his new Gollywood Tower, which he claims will broadcast entertainment to all of Cyberspace. (The tower is really meant to corrupt Motherboard's hard drive.) The CyberSquad goes up against Hacker at a city council hearing. Will they get their park, or will Hacker dazzle the council into approving his tower? Big idea: Communities need to provide safe, inviting outdoor spaces where kids can play and be physically active. Math concepts: Data Collection and Representation: Surveys, Tally Marks.

Mermaidos is murky and warm and the fish are leaving in droves. Digit feels terrible for his pal Eugene and promises to do what he can to make things right. It turns out Hacker has put a plan in motion to turn Mermaidos into his own personal hot tub! He is making the water hotter and hotter, raising the temperature to a hot 100 cyber-degrees- a temperature that would make Mermaidos uninhabitable for the Mermaidians and force them to move out. It is up to Digit and the CyberSquad to stop Hacker's plan, reverse the thermal pollution and help save Eugene's home.

Digit brings the kids into cyberspace to help fix her, but the special coolant Motherboard needs, cryoxide, is found only in Castleblanca - and the supply is closely monitored! To bring back exactly enough cryoxide for Motherboard, the kids have to figure out the exact volume of Motherboard's tank. In the process, they discover the importance of a standard unit of measure - and fill a most unusual container with the precious cryoxide.

The kids and Digit travel underwater in two separate vessels, but Hacker has a listening device that taps into their communications system, allowing him to overhear their plans - and track every move they make. The kids outsmart Hacker by devising a series of codes so they can send messages back and forth in secret - even though Hacker can hear what they're saying.

The Big Idea: You can use a code (a communication system that substitutes one thing for another) to send top-secret messages as long as your code has an adjustable rule that can be reversed to read the message.

Digit is pet-sitting in Golftopia, taking care of Dewey, a lovable Deedle Beast. But suddenly Dewey starts going berserk on his daily walks. What's going on?! The kids arrive to help, but how do you figure out what's wrong with an animal that can't talk? The kids begin to see a pattern in the critter's odd behavior - and the plot thickens when they realize that Hacker has moved in right next door. What is the King of Chaos up to this time?
