I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team.
I’m not sure about you, but my kids are faaaaascinated with science. Making a potato battery? Mixing vinegar and baking soda? Food coloring carnations? Oh yeah, baby.
We love fostering that love of science and experimentation with science-based movies and shows that stream on Netflix. (Mythbusters is our favorite, by far.)
