Brainchild: Brainchild - a science show for tweens

Now on Netflix, Brainchild, is a 13 episode series for tweens and teens.

To me, this is an extremely well-produced 3-2-1 Contact, but funnier and better.

Some initial reviews.

My 10 year old love this like I've never seen him love a show. He cannot stop talking about what he's learned.
It is so well done! I will likely show some episodes to my college classes.
I love the host and the diversity of people featured.

If you have a tween, point them towards it immediately. I think middle elementary kids (like 2nd and 3rd grade) might like it, but it might be a bit fast for them.

I just watched the trailer and I know my 1st grader will get 0% of the pop culture references but otherwise it looks like he'd enjoy it too. Putting it on the TV dinner list for when we finish Hilda.

My 1st grader adores this show and has a new belly laugh I've never heard for the rare times he *does* get one of the pop culture references.
