Math , puzzles , environmental I love this show we grew up watching it , their are so many things that can be applied to real life and learning. My son is seven and we watch this together most mid mornings . It helps kids get concept of math and applied it and is fun and entertaining at the same time , it teaches recycling and about carbon footprint and various things about the environment.

Great show for either introducing or reinforcing math concepts and working together as a team. Younger kids might like it as well. The real world 5 or so mins is great at illustrating how math works in life. So disappointed it’s not on the amazon prime ep as cybechase is on at 6 am here. Otherwise, hacker the main villain calls his sidekicks names almost every ep. this I could do without but does show how you shouldn’t talk to your teammates.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (27 ):

The only downside to adventures in Cyberspace is the fact that many characters are glued to computer screens all day and have a limited sense of what goes on in the "real world." Apparently Cyberchase's producers considered this paradox and have provided a 5-minute scenario after the cartoon called "For Real," which shows a real person solving problems using the skills taught in the show -- in the real world.
