President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are teaming up Chris Nee, creator of ‘Doc McStuffins,’ to bring ‘Ada Twist, Scientist’ to Netflix as a series of 12-minute animated episodes. The beloved children’s book by Andrea Beaty follows Ada as she learns about the world and conducts experiments.
Eight-year old Ada Twist is a pint-size scientist with a giant-size curiosity who aspires to discover the truth about absolutely everything. With the help of her two best friends, Rosie Revere and Iggy Peck, Ada unravels and solves mysteries for her friends and family. But solving the mystery is only the beginning, because science isn’t just about learning how and why and what — it’s about putting that knowledge into action to make the world a better place. The series also will feature real scientists to inspire young viewers.
Forty episodes are slated to come out starting in 2021. Learn more about the series at the author’s website.
