Super Science Showcase Content Guidelines

NO Sexual Content. Including discussions of sexual/gender identity or orientation.

NO Cursing.

NO Gratuitous Violence. While many of our adventure stories feature action, including guns and battle scenes, violence is kept at commonly accepted PG-levels.

Fair & Balanced Approach to History. SSS believes in a fair, non-judgmental approach to history, presenting an unbiased view of the past that highlights both its positives and negatives.

Personal Statement from Creator Lee Fanning

"As Creative Director I have final approval of all content produced for Super Science Showcase. While many people work in many different capacities on SSS materials, and we all come from varying backgrounds, with varying beliefs and opinions, ultimately I am steering the ship, and it's up to me to ensure that Super Science Showcase materials reflect the values that I hold most dear. I do not take this responsibility lightly.

"I will work to ensure SSS materials are appropriate for and appeal most directly to children, aged 9 to 14, while also more broadly appealing to any age; I will work to ensure SSS materials make a special commitment to appeal to the general tastes of boy readers, though not at the expense of girl readers; and I will continue to ensure a post-Enlightenment, Judeo-Christian value system is the prominent moral core of SSS materials."
