Meet Science: Magnetism and Electricity offers kids a great opportunity to learn, experiment, and play. The lessons are content-rich, with cute characters and colorful animations that keep things interesting. It's nice that each lesson is followed by a brief quiz, but there are only three questions, and they're not scored. However, feedback is immediate, and kids can learn from their mistakes. The experiments are fairly straightforward and include a summary page as well as a materials list and an opportunity for kids to make predictions about the experiments. Some require materials kids may not be able to get their hands on. Nonetheless, seeing the concepts from the lessons in action is a good learning experience. The mini-games do a nice job of incorporating the concepts learned in the lessons. They are fun, challenging, and scored. Kids will enjoy applying what they learned through interactive gameplay.

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.
