Pointless and wasteful. Creating silly contraptions for a silly situation. Science? don't waste your time. Opening music is horrible also--probably the worst part.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This no-frills, science-based series is an intriguing choice for older tweens and teens who enjoy watching the problem-solving process in action. The challenges are designed to get viewers' gears turning along with the contestants', and families can have fun devising their own solutions to the tasks (which they're invited to submit via the show's Web site).

And aside from some occasional strong language as a result of the participants' stressful working conditions, the content is mostly worry free, so families of tweens and teens can tune in without concern.

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.
