Tangled Up In String
Oops - he's on his way out the door and Uncle Norm finds a tear in his coat! Using duct tape (riiip!) to repair the tear won't work, so he burrows into a, Stuff 'n Such, junk pile, where he finds a sewing kit, but no thread! Rush, rush, he digs deeper and sees a piece of string art, made from lots of thread! Just as Uncle Norm is about to pull the artwork apart for his repair, Alanna and Kevin appear... in time to stop him from destroying an example of this colourful, and mathematical, art form. String art patterns are made with straight lines, but the finished product can give the illusion of curves. Uncle Norm and the Rads learn how to make their own rad-tastic string art! This episode is about geometric string art designs. Once a geometric design has been created, the points at which line segments meet can be given a numeric value.

In addition, students must follow the directions (problem solving and pattern and sequence recognition) in order to successfully complete the project.

Jerry and the Raiders
Hair-Em Scare-Em
Haircut day! Nicole is excited but Jerry hates change especially changing his hair. Suddenly Nicole wails - her caterpillar Stripey is missing!! The kids ask mom for time to look for Stripey. The Raiders find Stripey. He's been captured by the Pod Poacher and is trapped inside a pod. The Raiders are about to slingshot the pod over the fence to save them all when Jerry realizes that it might just be a chrysalis. Sure enough, they watch a beautiful monarch emerge, pretty big change for Stripey. They are all so happy that even Jerry is now ready for a change, at least to his hair.
