Getting our Science groove on with Netflix and ProjectMC2

Netflix Original Project Mc2 - Horizontal Display Art - FINAL

One of the things my kids love about homeschooling is doing Science projects. This month Netflix sent us a few fun science experiments to try out in honor of the new show Project Mc².

Project Mc² is a fresh take on the typical tween girl show you’re probably familiar with. The series has S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) organically woven throughout the storyline, making it fun and breaking the stereotype that being smart, funny, stylish and capable are mutually exclusive. Project Mc² reflects today’s tweens in a relatable way, giving girls four empowered female leads to look up to.


Monkey is really enjoying the series on Netflix. She wanted to watch the next episode as soon as the first one finished. All the kids are loving the science experiments that they sent. So far we’ve done a penny experiment where we turn it green with vinegar.

Turn Penny Green

We placed a small piece of paper towel in a petri dish and put some vinegar on it. We then placed a penny on top of the paper towel and covered it with the petri dish cover. We left the penny for a little over 24 hours and the whole front of the penny turned green where the bottom of the penny didn’t change at all!

Do your kids get into the #STEAM subjects? (Science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) Mine surely do! Be sure to check out Project Mc² on Netflix. What fun experiments have you tried with your kids lately?
