Planet Mechanics highlights how creativity and science can be fused together to create interesting energy-saving devices. It also shows how materials that we use and discard every day can be repurposed to create low-cost energy.

Granted, the show doesn’t follow up on the long-term use of these inventions or the actual environmental impact of using them. But it successfully underscores the idea that building machines that are powered by alternative fuel sources is both possible and easier than you'd think.

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.
