The Kinetic City Super Crew needs your kids' help to save their virtual world of Vearth from the science-distorting compurter virus, Deep Delete!

The kids in your program will work together to perform engaging and educational science activities, and then download their data to the Super Crew (Keisha, Curtis, Megan and Max) to help repair their world. Then, your kids will go on an exciting Mission To Vearth adventure, earning Kinetic City Power Points as they use their knowledge to battle Deep Delete.
