Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this documentary series details the design and construction of some of the world's most impressive structures and machines. Experts weigh in on the process from conception through planning and building, and computer graphics help demonstrate the science behind it all. The series also touches on outside factors (wars, depressions, technological advances, etc.) that played a role in enhancing or delaying each project. The educational content is great for tweens and teens, but young kids may find it on the dull side.
Is It Any Good?
In addition to offering insight into large-scale construction, MegaStructures celebrates the innovative human spirit that's at the heart of every project featured in the series. Families of tweens and teens can marvel at these man-made wonders together, but the show's somewhat dry subject matter may well bore younger viewers.
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.
