LPB premiers new animated program, HERO ELEMENTARY June 1

(BATON ROUGE, LA) – Learning is the ultimate superpower! Monday, June 1, LPB will premiere the new animated PBS Kids program, HERO ELEMENTARY. The series aims to give children ages 4 to 7 the tools to solve problems by teaching them to think and act like scientists and by igniting their natural curiosity and empathy.

The stories in HERO ELEMENTARY center around a team of super students called Sparks’ Crew; Lucita Sky, AJ Gadgets, Sara Snap, and Benny Bubbles, led by their quirky and enthusiastic teacher, Mr. Sparks. Together, they help people solve problems 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 – to help them investigate, observe, make predictions, and figure out a solution.

“We have carved out a unique hero universe for young kids that uses all the excitement of the superhero genre to empower them to solve problems by actively doing science,” said Carol-Lynn Parente, Co-creator and Executive Producer of HERO ELEMENTARY. “Our kid heroes are a diverse team, still learning how to save the day, and the excitement for the audience is finding out the superpowers of science are powers anyone can use to solve a problem and be a hero.”

HERO ELEMENTARY premieres on LPB HD with a one-hour movie special on June 1 at 7:00AM with a special encore airing at 4:00PM the same day. You can watch it during its regular time, weekdays at 7:00AM.
