Hero Elementary is a school for budding superheroes, where kids learn to master their innate powers, like flying and teleportation, while exploring science along the way. 

This new PBS KIDS series aims to give children ages 4-7 the tools to solve problems by thinking and acting like scientists and 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, work together to 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.
