The High Definition quality in conjunction with state of the art cameras produce video content that is absolutely mesmerizing. Don’t take our word for it, get a preview of CuriosityStream with the free full episodes.
We aren’t the only ones who love the CuriosityStream content. The Kingdom: How Fungi Made Our World won the Science of Life Category at the 2018 Jackson Hole Science Media Awards, which honor the world’s foremost science storytellers and stories. The Science of Life category is awarded to the film that best examines the rich world of life on our planet including relevant disciplines such as Botany, Zoology, Genetics, and Evolution. My two-year-old sat in awe through Kingdom Fungi because she was transfixed by the time lapse and microscopic views of fungi across the world. My older daughters have since shared facts about fungi that they learned from this documentary.
The amount of content can be overwhelming with a new subscription. In addition to the amazing programming, Curiosity Stream has a blog with behind-the-scenes information. We love watching a program after reading about how it was made on the blog. Our kids are very interested in how the programs are made, who makes them, and where they take place. Even though we have enjoyed the programs we have watched, not all the content is appropriate for children. CuriosityStream offers a Kids Mode that filters for visually explicit violence in recreations, factual content with disturbing imagery, and visually explicit sexual content both in nature and in human interaction.
