A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Science Fair is quite the discovery, fanning the flame of curiosity that kids have about the world and encouraging them to explore. The indie-rock music features lots of acclaimed children's musicians, with content and lyrics that are clean, enticing, and as cool as a bucket of dry ice.
What's the story?
SCIENCE FAIR is jam-packed with 18 tracks that bring out the science geek in everyone, young and old. What is phytoplankton? Who was Madame Curie? These questions and more are answered with cool indie-rock songs from talented children's artists like Elizabeth Mitchell, Laura Veirs, and Allison Faith Levy, among many others.
Is it any good?
Science Fair nurtures and celebrates the curiosity of childhood and the world around us with colorful and dramatic indie-rock music that parents might appreciate more than their kiddos. The melodies are hypnotic and fun, with some silly and smart lyrics about making discoveries, asking questions, and expanding your mind (and vocabulary) with terms like "phytoplankton," "quantum mechanics," and "radioactivity." Kids and parents will certainly learn a thing or two, and you might just realize you have some little scientists in the making. Bring on the white coats, goggles, and future Nobel Prize winners.
