Filmed in real-life work settings, the program looks closely at what a computer consists of, how the various components work, how it processes data, and how it is used in robotics and software development.
Follow the adventures of monster kids - Frankie, Gunnar and Vlad. Expelled from Monster Academy for pulling a prank, the bros are sent to Human Immersion at a normal middle school where they come face-to-face with terrifying humans. Minibeasts Heroes is an animated series that takes you up close and personal with six Aussie bugs to show you how they save the world. Their mission is to keep Hawk Moth, who wants to steal their Miraculouses, from wreaking havoc on the town. Marinette and Adrien are two high school kids with a difference: they are the chosen ones to save Paris from the akumas, creatures responsible for turning normal people into super-baddies.
Ladybug and Cat Noir have more powers and superhero teammates to assist them, which will prove useful now that Hawk Moth has an ally now too. However, images of the fish are often taken out of the water, which explains its droopy appearance and look of despair. The star nosed mole has no chance of winning any beauty contests - but pity is not required.

This animal is a super-talented hunter with a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as fastest forager. Despite resembling an extra-terrestrial lifeform from the set of Dr Who, the mole is very much an earthly creature and can be found in underground tunnels built in marshy soil in parts of Canada and the north-eastern United States.
The twenty-two fleshy pink appendages give this blind hamster-sized creature the ability to detect and consume a meal in milliseconds. This mole is not only an accomplished tunneller but also an excellent swimmer, thanks to its water repellent fur and clawed feet used for paddling.

It has an ingenious way of smelling whilst submerged; it, exhales bubbles onto prey or objects before inhaling them to detect a scent. A rodent - so different from any other species that it has been recognised by its own mammalian family called Heterocephalinae.
The almost complete lack of hair is not down to premature balding or work-related stress; these mammals are unable to regulate their own body temperature. Fortunately, their burrows — found in parts of eastern Africa - are generally consistent in temperature and humidity. Naked mole-rats lack a key neurotransmitter called substance P found in mammals and is responsible for distributing pain to the central nervous system meaning these animals are unable to feel pain.
This is thought to be an evolutionary adaptation of animals living in high levels of carbon dioxide, which gives them resistance from the pain of acid forming in their tissues. The naked mole rat has a high-resistance to cancerous tumours, which - along with being extraordinarily long-lived for a rodent up to 31 years - makes them the subject of scientific interest. Ridiculously cute or horrifyingly ugly? The aye-aye is the largest nocturnal primate - related to the Lemur, it is found in the forest areas of Madagascar. It has extremely sensitive bat-like ears and long black bony fingers which it uses to detect grubs under tree bark, using an ingenious echo-location hunting technique.
Unfortunately, the aye-aye has been a victim of its own appearance and traditionally regarded as a harbinger of evil and hunted to the point of extinction. Despite the population recovering somewhat in recent years this primate is still listed as endangered because of deforestation and a slow reproductive cycle. This solitary creature is also an endangered species — it is estimated that there are a few as 5, left in the wild due to deforestation and illegal hunting.
