Brainchild is a new Netflix Originals series written especially for preteens. It explores the science behind everything from germs to emotions to superheroes. Along the lines of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! TV show, Brainchild makes science exciting and intriguing. When the show explores topics such as social media, it also gives kids strategies and a reason to use social media responsibly.
Our Take on Brainchild
Preteens are likely to enjoy this show and learn a lot at the same time. We appreciate how the series has chosen topics relevant to preteens and challenges them to make good choices—not just “because I said so” but for logical reasons, kids can get behind. Keep in mind that the creators have their own science-based approach, and some of the teaching may conflict with parents’ beliefs. Most of the content isn’t controversial, but be aware so you or parents can have conversations with preteens when certain scientific theories are presented as fact.
