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 scientific process - not dumbed down

Challenges across all types of science led by smart role model female scientists and teams of 3-4 girls. The girls are generally so inspiring, well-rounded and personable, as well as being enthusiastic and focused. Driven by love of learning and real world problems, nothing superficial or made for tv. Wish there were loads more series like this - both my 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter love and rewatch.
