Season 3: new ZOOMers – Buzz, Eric, Frances, Kaleigh and Rachel. Returning ZOOMers, Caroline and Kenny Season 2: new ZOOMers –Caroline, Claudio, Jessie, Kenny, Ray. Returning ZOOMers: Alisa and Zoe. Season 1: The ZOOM cast - Kaiko, Jared, Alisa, Pablo, Lynese, Zoe, and David—range in age from nine to 13 and hail from towns in or around greater Boston and Nashua, NH. On a typical show, Alisa demonstrates how to make chocolate-covered bananas (CafeZOOM); Jared and Zoe launch film canister rockets (ZOOMsci); and the entire cast dissolves into laughter while playing “Simon Says . . . Not!” (ZOOMgame). Other recurring segments include: ZOOMa cum laude, honors given to kids who have done terrific things; ZOOMzinger, challenges to strain the brain and body; ZOOMdo, arts projects; ZOOMplayhouse, skits and plays performed by the cast; and ZOOMtale, original stories and poems. There’s ZOOMguest, which introduces viewers to kids with cool hobbies like speed skating, fly fishing, unicycling, dog sledding, and rock climbing. At its heart, ZOOM is much more than entertaining television: it’s also a literacy series that encourages kids to write down their ideas and take an active approach to learning.
