Embracing Exploration

Spring marks the beginning of a very exciting time for school-aged kids: science projects! There are many ways to nurture the exploratory side of children, including streaming shows on Netflix. Below are a few picks that'll be sure to get children engaged in embracing their exploratory side:

How The Universe Works
This series provides a story of the universe that includes our solar system as well as distant galaxies. From black holes to supernovas to alien solar systems, this series is sure to grab -- and keep -- the attention of children and the entire family.

Build It Bigger
I think this show is so cool! But, more importantly, children will love it as well, especially if they're into legos and puzzles and building things. Throughout the show, the main character, Danny travels all around the world in order to see how things are built. The only downside? There aren't nearly enough episodes to the show so you'll be yearning for more!

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
Not only is this flick funny, but it also teaches children how to be brave and witty. In this family film, it's Jimmy Neutron to the rescue when aliens kidnap all the adults in Retroville. This is a movie that the entire family will enjoy, and more than once.

How does your family use Netflix to engage in exploration and fun?
