This post is part of my partnership with the Netflix Stream Team.
I’ll admit it, I’m a geek. I would be a lifelong student if it weren't for the money, oh and current lack of sleep!
I married a geek too. He likes to (for fun) read physics book and how to websites. He takes everything apart to see if he can fix it before calling someone or buying a new one. Back when we had cable documentaries and science shows were our favorite.
Now that we’re older we get our geek on by teaching our kids. This month it has meant science fair construction! Our third grader was doing his first ever solo science fair project. He is a tinker-er just like his dad. When our old computer died he took the entire thing apart to see all the working parts. He loves to build and since he was very little he has always asked “how does that work” So I put dad on the case and they went off to explore what they had the time and resources to accomplish.
A quick look around How Stuff Works (a favorite site) and they decided to tackle electromagnets. While they worked on that I enjoyed watching my favorite scientific duo Mythbusters:
It’s just one of the great shows that explain, how stuff works that you can stream on Netflix. We plan on spending some time on this spring break watching some together as a family as my son is well on his way to being a geek like us. He declared the science fair night the “best night ever!” and he can’t wait to do it again next year.
If you have a little one you can still get them geeked about science an learning with some of these titles for little ones. Out kids are particular fans of Wild Kratts
