PSIP Description: 
The kids discover the importance of a standard unit of measure, while trying to save Motherboard.
Long Description: 
(topic: Liquid Volume) - Determined to destroy Motherboard in any way possible, Hacker cleverly clogs up her cooling system. Digit brings the kids into cyberspace to help fix her, but the special coolant Motherboard needs, cryoxide, is found only in Castleblanca - and the supply is closely monitored! To bring back exactly enough cryoxide for Motherboard, the kids have to figure out the exact volume of Motherboard's tank. In the process, they discover the importance of a standard unit of measure - and fill a most unusual container with the precious cryoxide. The Big Idea: Just because one container appears bigger to the eye doesn't mean it holds more liquid than another. A container's volume depends on all its dimensions.
