Ada Twist, Scientist was published in 2016. The picture book is described as perfect to, “jumpstart conversations about scientists, girl scientists, gender roles, forming hypotheses, giftedness and childhood genius, and individual creativity. Or just use it for laughs on a lazy school day afternoon,” by the NY Journal of Books. Booklist Online also wrote that, “Young Ada Twist and her nonstop intellect might just encourage readers to blaze trails of their own.” 

Mark your calendars for September 28th to watch Ada Twist Scientist when it drops on Netflix. While that date is still weeks away, fans are in luck as the streaming service has exclusively dropped an episode of the series to Netflix Jr. YouTube.
