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.

The new Bill Nye

I honestly love this show! My son has become so much more curious and excited about science and it’s all thanks to it. The host used to be a host for TVOkids back when I was my son’s age and his energy is perfect for the show, he’s engaging and invites different scientists to help explain and explore the different topics/fields. I appreciate that there are a lot of female guest scientists that come on to encourage young girls to be interested in science as well
