Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series attempts to enlighten viewers about the various ways that scientists and engineers are working to help preserve the planet. And while it's definitely informative, the detailed scientific explanations can be a little overwhelming -- not to mention a little bit tedious.

For those reasons, the show may not fit tweens' idea of entertainment unless they're already interested in science and/or green issues. But Eco-Tech can certainly be used as a starting point for conversations about global warming, recycling, and other environment-related issues. It also offers the chance to see how different people trained in various fields can use their expertise as environmentalists.
