Last summer we discovered The Netflix Original show Project Mc² when the first season arrived on Netflix. You can read about McKeyla McAlister, Adrienne Attoms, Bryden Bandweth and Camryn Coyle – who make up Project Mc2 in my Netflix Picks Post. They’re on a (secret) mission – to make sure tween girls (and boys) know that it’s cool to be smart and to love S.T.E.A.M subjects (that’s science, technology, engineering, art and maths).
No show is complete these days without it’s own geek chic fashion doll line and the show returns – with two new seasons (six episodes on Friday 12 August, six episodes in October), new stories, new products and two new characters and of course lots of new toys – perfect for birthday girls or Christmas gifts. Watch the Project Mc² Season 2 Official Trailer below:
Season two launches on Friday 12 August and follows the four best friends – plus two new recruits, Devon D’Marco and Ember Evergreen – as they complete undercover missions, as part of secret organisation NOV8. Themes such as hacking, cyber bullying, anarchy and the threat of technology blackouts are all tackled in the new show.
Marian Davis, MGA Marketing Manager, said: “Project Mc2 is a truly exciting and inspirational brand. We feel as though we’ve created something totally new – with a fun, fast-paced action show and a very cool fashion doll line. Both the show and product range align with S.T.E.A.M. to inspire and encourage the next generation to pursue these important topics.”
To accompany the new season, MGA Entertainment has launched a new range of uber cool fashion dolls, but these are fashion dolls with a scientific twist – each coming with their own experiment that kids can perform at home.
McKeyla’s Glitter Light Bulb
The show’s main character comes with her own glitter light bulb experiment – that shows how simple tap water can actually conduct electricity. Mix water and food colouring, add glitter and glycerine and watch as it really lights up!
Adrienne’s Bath Fizz
Culinary chemist Adrienne teaches children how to make their own bath bomb in this innovative kit. Using citric acid (because it is a solid) and baking soda – plus optional ingredients such as glitter, sprinkles and food colouring – in the mould provided. Guaranteed to make your bath more fun!
Bryden’s Panda Speaker
Tech genius Bryden comes with a Panda speaker – you just have to complete the electrical circuit to make the music play. Feed an apple slice to the panda to play your favourite song!
Devon’s Puffy Paint
One of the new members, Devon teaches you how to mix household ingredients such as flour, water and salt to make ‘puffy paint.’ The salt forms crystals when the paint dries (to make it sparkly) and the process of the water evaporating makes it appear ‘puffy’.
Learn about the science of gardening with Ember’s Terrarium (an aquarium for plants). Add rocks, soil and seeds to see the water cycle in action and learn why it is essential to plant life.
Just like in the Netflix original series, the girls cool ride is also available and is actually powered by S.T.E.A.M! The new Project Mc2 H20 Remote Control Car(SRP £59.99) combines all the thrill of an RC car with working headlights and real steam coming out of the exhaust. Pop the hood to connect the engine, and add H2O (that’s water!) to the tank to activate and run the car. Manoeuvre this sporty, red car using the easy-to-use remote control.
Investigate in style with this amazing gadget, the Ultimate Spy Bag (SRP £39.99)– as worn by Adrienne Attoms in the show. Opening up to reveal a forensic fingerprinting kit, the bag contains an air blower disguised as a perfume bottle, a magnifying glass hidden in a make up compact, a torch hidden in a nail polish bottle, a secret message launcher disguised as a lipstick, test tubes and much more!
The ultimate gadget for any NOV8 agent, the Lip Gloss Voice Recorder (SRP £19.99) is the perfect way to pass on your secret messages. A speaker disguised as a makeup compact, it records and plays back your recordings – and also comes complete with real lip gloss!
Be a secret agent just like McKeyla McAlister with your vey ownpersonal, digital notebook. The A.D.I.S.N – Advanced Digital Intelligence Spy Notebook (RRP £24.99) comes with fun phrases directly from the character in the TV show, a booklet containing secret missions, hidden compartments and a special NeRDy bracelet, being an agent has never been more fun! The Notebook also ties into the free app, Project Mc2 Case Files, for even more action.
Conduct your experiments on the go with this Ultimate Lab Kit (RRP £49.99)! Unzip the “bag” to reveal over 30 pieces, including a real microscope, test tubes, lab flasks, safety goggles and more! Using household ingredients, you can perform over 15 experiments with this clever kit.
