Just wanted to write how much two of my children (aged 4 and 5) enjoy this show. They love the format and get so excited when the neuron is chosen. When it was the episode about the bees and all 5 were chosen they were thrilled! Its nice to have a show for kids that treats them seriously with out being all singing and dancing. Nina is so enthusiastic and genuinely interested the children respond well to her. My own children have wanted to try out many of the experiments at home, especially the egg related ones, which are joyously messy. No wonder Scotland produces so many inventors.
