Episode: Space Racers - episode: 113H

Animation 1: Hawk's Day - Story: As part of his training, Hawk is unexpectedly assigned to lead a mission to the Moon. His job: to supervise the use of a new Lunar Elevator to lift a group of freighters carrying valuable Moon rocks up into space, and then lead the convoy safely back to Earth. There's only one problem: Eagle ¬- who's accustomed to being named Mission Leader - can't seem to stop offering unwanted advice and suggestions to his insecure friend, which leads them all into big trouble as their convoy is bombarded by a powerful meteoroid stream. The cadets learn that they must work together if they hope to overcome their obstacles. Curriculum Focus: A Team Approach - Collaborating with a team and then sharing what one has learned is often useful. Interstitial 1: "NASM 3- Man on the Moon". Animation 2: Satellite Starling - Story: During a playfully competitive game of Orb-O above the Moon, Hawk and his friends accidentally damage the solar-powered Lunar Elevator just as it's lifting a group of rockets from the surface up into space - rockets who now find themselves trapped aboard a broken elevator. To make matters worse, thanks to the Earth's natural orbit around the Sun, they'll all soon find themselves on the dark side of the Moon. Can Coot and the Space Racers repair the elevator before everyone is plunged into extreme darkness and cold? And can Eagle, Robyn and Hawk rescue little Starling, who's been innocently playing with the missing part that Coot needs to effect his repair, but is now lost inside a massive ever-shifting maze of space garbage. Curriculum Focus: A Team Approach - Collaborating with a team and then sharing what one has learned is often useful. Interstitial 2: "Space Art 4: Create Your Own Satellite". Character Bio: Hawk.
