Is It Any Good?

This Shark Tank-like show, which has been recognized by the White House for its support of STEM education, shows how an idea can be developed into a commercially viable, and potentially highly profitable, product with the help of science, engineering, and math. The accessible explanations and demonstrations of each invention also make the journey from idea to product entertaining.

Inventors and engineers of all ages will certainly be inspired by the positive messages (hard work, creativity, perseverance) featured here. But even the non-scientist will benefit from some of the less obvious lessons, including the need to clearly and concisely articulate your goals and the importance of having passion for your idea. Most of all, it underscores the importance of believing in what you're creating, even if no one else does.

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.
