Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Nina And The Neurons combines live-action, animation, singing, and simple experiments designed to answer a wide-range of simple science and STEM-related questions. Some of the experiments are done in the laboratory, while others are conducted off-site, introducing the young experimenters and viewers to people who are in a position to specifically demonstrate how the science works. At the end of each episode, the Neurons summarize the answers, and Nina does some singing.
Is It Any Good?
This lively and informative series is designed to help young children understand basic scientific concepts. With the help of an energetic host, animated characters, and multiple, child-friendly experiments, questions posed by children are answered in ways that are simple to grasp. Meanwhile, the repetition of definitions and answers throughout the episode (which sometimes can make the show feel a little long) helps to retain the information. Whether it's explaining why our tongues are wet, to showing how robots are made, Nina And The Neurons offers kids an excellent and entertaining opportunity to learn more about science and STEM.
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.
