NEW PBS KIDS SERIES!
These kids may be super human, but it’s science that makes humans truly super!
HERO ELEMENTARY stars a team of super students called Sparks’ Crew. Lucita Sky, AJ Gadgets, Sara Snap and Benny Bubbles — along with speedy hamster sidekick Fur Blur — are led by their quirky and enthusiastic teacher, Mr. Sparks. Together they help people, problem solve and try to make the world a better place. When their imperfect powers aren’t up to the task, they look to their other powers – the Superpowers of Science – which help them to investigate, observe, make predictions and figure out a solution. This new series premieres Monday, June 1!
Monday-Friday @ 8:00am on Blue Ridge PBS
