Disclaimer: As part of the StreamTeam from Netflix, I am participating in this post. Incentives are given for being a part of the team; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone.
My daughter is 11-years old, and for the past few years all she has talked about is how much she loves school and in particular math and science. Being a former middle school teacher, I know how challenging it can be to get kids (especially girls) interested in math and science as favorite subjects. I am elated to see her excel in this area. She currently aspires to be a computer engineer when she grows up, as she stated below on her Back-to-School Night project I saw above her locker.
One of her new go-to shows on Netflix is the original series Project Mc². It really resonates with her because of the math and science components and the age of the characters. This show promotes how being “smart” is the new cool for back-to-school this year. The show features four supercool teen spies who show how girls can use their science smarts and math problem-solving skills to save the world. How cool is that? You can check out a clip below:
Netflix StreamTeam also provided us with some cool experiments for my daughter to complete. She’s worked on a few and loved seeing what happens with the experiments. Who doesn’t love wearing science goggles and seeing what happens when chemicals are involved? Another fun activity has been watching the first three episodes of this new original series on Netflix! Her favorite character is the lead, McKeyla, who she also has a doll of now for her collection. I love seeing strong female characters that are smart and show our growing girls that they can be anything they want to be! Make sure to check this show out with your tween and teen daughters too!

She even had a lab assistant named Darwin!
