Kerwhizz is 'The Quiz with Added Whizz!' It is designed to be an involving, informative and exhilarating experience for four to six year olds.
Three teams answer questions to win 'Mods' for their racing 'Pods'. They then shoot around a fantastic Race world to find out who is the smartest, fastest team.
Each episode has it's own special race world, and the audience are given the chance to guess what it is before it's revealed. These race worlds vary from the historical (Egypt World) to the hysterical (Hat-trick Highway). The three teams must try to use their 'Pod Mods' wisely to help them in the race.
The show encourages the viewers to participate in finding answers to the questions, and to develop allegiances to the six characters that make up the teams.
The questions on the programme are carefully framed to encourage the use of different learning styles and the whole show offers such a safe and supportive environment that it really won't matter if your child doesn't get all the questions right.
