"This is a job for the Zula Patrol!"
3D/CG animated television series aimed at preschoolers to 2nd Graders that started airing on PBS Kids
in 2005 and now runs on Qubo
. Created by Deb Manchester in 1999, Zula Patrol was originally a children's book. This series was designed to entertain while promoting an understanding of science and astronomy through engaging character-driven stories, which focus on specific educational science learning objectives. In every episode of The Zula Patrol, the characters demonstrate inquiry-based learning and critical thinking skills. They also model inquisitiveness, observation, self-reflection, and social experiences that encourage collaboration, teamwork, and an excitement for scientific exploration and problem solving.
Of course, in every new episode, they do learn something new and science-y. However, the show breaks the laws of science about once per new idea they teach.
