Nickelodeon’s Blaze and the Monster Machines™ is an interactive series for preschoolers featuring Blaze, the world's most amazing monster truck, and his driver and best friend, 8-year-old AJ. The series follows their adventures in Axle City—a town populated with big-wheeled vehicles known as Monster Machines.
In every episode, Blaze and the Monster Machines race into high-octane adventures that explore the physics of how things move and how to tackle problems using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Each action-packed episode is filled with monster trucks, humor and original songs with lyrics that highlight a STEM concept such as adhesion, friction, force, trajectory and magnetism.
When Stripes is going one speed and then starts going faster, that’s acceleration! Press down on Stripes’ spoiler to make him accelerate!
Hear that? When Darington talks, his words turn into a sound wave that moves through the air to carry the sound to your ear!
When Blaze transforms into a jet, thrust is a must! Thrust is the power an engine makes to push a plane through the air.
When Blaze does stunts and wheelies, he needs balance. Balance is when something’s weight is evenly supported, so it doesn’t tip over!
Force is when you push or pull something! Blaze needs to swing his wrecking crane ball with enough force to smash the robot!
An angle is what you have when two lines come together! You can set Crusher’s launcher at an angle so he can aim to knock over the barrels!
Hit the launcher to make Blaze soar in any direction you want. The path he follows when he zooms forward is his trajectory!
Momentum is strength of a moving thing, measured by its speed and weight. Heavy things, and things that are moving quickly, have more momentum . The faster Blaze zooms down the track and through the loop, the more momentum he has!
