Division Infinity is a class of top-secret elementary school students coming together to solve the biggest problems facing kids across the world. Today, their teacher Ms. McToria has brought them an urgent new assignment: defeat the evil Cononi-19 virus! Super-secret student agents Soda, Chiqui and Spiderwolf are tasked with creating an ultimate mission plan to end the pandemic and they need your help. Will they beat Cononi and finally bring back birthday parties, playdates, and abuela-visits? Join Division Infinity and find out! A puppet show inspired by stories, art, and puppets created by real Grade Four students reflecting on their pandemic experiences.
