Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

out dated information

most of the science done when i was a kid was rewritten or updated so you would have to look up what parts are needed to be updated or changed and remove them from view or they will not get the correct information example episode 2 crust . he states the core of the earth is solid . the truth is the core is liquid and dense and produces the magnetic field that protects the earth . not that bad so keep in mind older science shows are not up to date with the current science knowledge
