This Spanish-language STEM podcast offers meaty scientific material on several topics. Brains On! en Español's variety-show approach is likely to appeal to kids and adults, since it makes learning far more entertaining than your average science lesson. Molly Bloom brings her themes to life in a way that helps kids understand complicated scientific topics and see themselves as curious scientists. While each episode is in Spanish, the opportunity to represent Latino scientists is missed, as scientists and experts included in each episode are not native speakers, but are Spanish-dubbed.

The podcast's audio quality and use of sounds make it humorous and entertaining. Kids will feel a connection to the show as they enjoy the interactive nature and hear questions from their peers answered in each episode.

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.
