Netflix Science Fair Greats #NetflixKids

I always enjoyed science class when I was in school.  Learning about matter and the solar system was very interesting.  Of course what kid doesn't like science experiments either? I remember the science fairs in elementary school always featured lots of erupting volcanos. The great thing about technology these days is that science is now at your fingertips.

Netflix is celebrating science fair greats this month.  Tell me if this sounds familiar to you. Your child comes home with a science fair packet, and is very interested to enter the fair.  The only problem is that they (and possibly you!) have no idea what to create or construct.  Before you sit there and wrack your brain for ideas or even turn to Google, why not confide in Netflix? You're probably wondering how Netflix will help you think of an idea, but trust me it will. 

A list of science TV shows and movies is the perfect way to jumpstart your child's brain and propel them to Planet Science.  For little scientists, Netflix recommends the following TV shows:

1. Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius
2. Peep and The Big Wide World
3. Magic School Bus: All Dried Up
4. Animal Mechanicals
5. Wild Kratts

For big kids, the following list is just for you:

1. How Stuff Works
2. How Do They Do It?
3. Is it Possible?
4. Build it Bigger
5. How the Universe Works
6. Extreme Engineering
7. Mythbusters

As you can see, this diverse list will surely come up with an award winning science project in no time.  Who knows, you might even learn something too while having fun!
