The Best Sci-Fi Kids Shows Ever Made
Many kids dread going to science class at school. Plenty of us had teachers who were content with lecturing instead of letting us actually do experiments, and all any kid wants to do is set something on fire. However, those same kids will immediately rush home to watch their favorite science fiction TV series. Plenty of cartoons and live-action series have aired over the years, and these are some of the best kids science fiction shows ever made.
Plenty of shows feature a genius child who makes whimsical gadgets and inventions. Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory and Jimmy Neutron always saved the day even though more times than not, they were the ones causing problems in the first place. Other science fiction shows, such as Star Wars Rebels, simply take place in a fantastical world where the characters use futuristic tools to defeat the bad guys.
Kids sci-fi shows do so much more than entertain children for a few hours. They can also inspire kids to pursue a career in the sciences and spark a passion that will be with them for the rest of their lives. This list has the greatest science fiction shows for kids of all time, and you can vote for your favorites.
