A high school setting featuring Penguins and a teenage intellectual (Einstein, Aristotle, Socrates) who is outcast by his fellow students for a theory or idea they have formed that just might be true. This idea might even drastically affect the lives of all the penguin students. But being an outcast due to being considered a nerd and of course being the only human there, no penguin will give him the time of day.
Could even be a parody of global warming or something. Like teenage Al Gore discovers that the overall temperature of the school is rising and none of the penguins believe him (for the same reasons mentioned above) and you have to help him either prove it to them or discover the source of the rise in temperatures and end it before the entire school starts to melt.
Along the way, the kids (depending on their age) would either learn of what to expect when they get to that age and reject or embrace some of the ideas, or if they're already out of high school, they'll sort of re-live or identify with certain happenings between the penguins in the school. Or maybe even with the one human.
Hmmm....is that considered an Ice World?
