With the start of school comes the age-old question from parents, “What did you do today?” What most of us really mean is, “What did you learn today?” We all want our kids to be excited about learning and hope wish dream that they will embrace it every day. We see the road ahead of them and know that a good education will take them farther in life. They see work. And more work. And more boring yucky work that takes time away from watching doll reviews and Minecraft videos on YouTube. Or maybe that’s just the way it is at my house.
There is one subject that both of my kids love – Science. They both like to do science experiments at home and it is usually the first thing subject they tell me about when they learn something new. I think this is awesome, and I encourage both of them to love it by letting them destroy my kitchen and use every bowl, measuring cup, and spoon in the house to do these experiments. Sometimes. Especially Cady.
Traditionally, girls have not been encouraged to pursue careers in Science. Or math. Or technology. Or engineering. But Cady is really good at all of those things. They way her brain works helps her to solve problems and see concepts that other people might struggle with. That is definitely something I want to encourage her interest in. That is one reason why I was excited when Netflix asked me to preview a new show for them called Project Mc2, which is a show about four girls who use science, technology, engineering, arts, and math to solve a crime. I asked Cady to watch and review it for me and this is what she had to say:
There is a new girl in town named Mckayla. She ended up showing up at a very coincidental time because Prince Zander is taking a trip to outer space. But three girls named Adrienne, Bryden, and Camryn think that’s more than a coincidence so they decide to start investigating and find out she’s a spy. Together, all four girls work together to keep the prince safe from the person who is trying to stop the launch.
I personally thought that this show was pretty cool. I mean, it’s hip and scientific all at the same time. If you like something cool, scientific, mysterious, and fun then this series is for you.
So there you have it from the resident tween girl at the Wiliams house. After she finished the series she told me the only bad thing was that she wished there were more episodes. Hopefully there will be more soon.
What shows are your tweens streaming on Netflix?
