The world’s first ad-free subscription video-on-demand service, CuriosityStream delivers high-quality documentaries that educate, inspire and entertain. And today, CuriosityStream premieres two new series that will spark curiosity in kids and their parents, just in time for the new school year.

QUARX, an original 26-episode series, takes an entirely new spin on science education and physics.

QUARX is produced by Screen Glue productions for CuriosityStream, which will feature new episodes throughout August and September.

MIND BLOWING BREAKTHROUGHS is a highly entertaining, original 26-episode series that takes a quirky and comical look at the greatest inventors in history, from Leonardo da Vinci to the Wright Brothers. MIND BLOWING BREAKTHROUGHS is produced by Astrolab Productions for CuriosityStream.
