Hero Elementary is an educational animated series that is aimed at preschoolers and early elementary-age children. This show is produced by PBS Kids and funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Hero Elementary is a fun and engaging way for children to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics while also developing important social-emotional skills.

The show is set in a school for young superheroes, where the students are learning how to use their powers for good. The main characters in the show are four students: AJ Gadgets, who has the power to invent and build gadgets; Benny Bubbles, who can create bubbles in many different shapes and sizes; Sara Snap, who can take photos that provide clues and solve mysteries; and Fur Blur, a lightning-fast student who can run at super speeds. The school is led by their teacher, Mr. Sparks, who helps guide the students through their adventures.

Every episode of Hero Elementary follows a similar structure. The students are presented with a problem or mystery that they need to solve using their special powers and STEM skills. They work together as a team to collect clues, develop hypotheses, and test their theories until they finally solve the problem. Through their adventures, the students learn about different scientific concepts such as light, sound, electricity, and motion.

The show incorporates a variety of teaching techniques to help children remember the STEM concepts they are learning. For example, each student has a personalized gadget that they use to solve problems, which helps children understand the relationship between tools and scientific concepts. In addition, the show includes catchy songs that explain scientific concepts in a fun and memorable way.

Another key aspect of Hero Elementary is the focus on social and emotional learning. At the beginning of each episode, the students recite a superhero pledge that emphasizes important values such as courage, kindness, and responsibility. Throughout each adventure, the students work together as a team and learn how to communicate effectively, manage their emotions, and persevere in the face of challenges. These social-emotional skills are just as important as the STEM concepts the students are learning, and they help prepare children for success in school and in life.

Overall, Hero Elementary is a great educational tool for children who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and math. The show presents these topics in a way that is accessible and engaging for young viewers, and it teaches important social-emotional skills that are essential for success in life. Whether children want to become superheroes themselves or just enjoy learning about the world around them, Hero Elementary is a fun and entertaining way to do it.

Hero Elementary is a series that is currently running and has 9 seasons (40 episodes). The series first aired on June 24, 2020.
