Two weeks ago, I was able to take Y with me to the Show and Tell with Robert Irwin at The Exploreum Laboratory at SM Mall of Asia. I was excited about going to this event as I was a bit of a fan of Steve Irwin and Y is still very new to anything science.
The Irwin Family. Bindi is all grown up na! And Robert is a very intelligent boy! You really can feel his passion for science and nature proving the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
The 10-year old Robert Irwin is starring in his first solo TV series with Isabel Yamazuki (in her television debut), the resident science geek reveal how science has made mankind a true student of Mother Nature. On each episode, they explore nature’s amazing solutions for problems in the wild and reveal how we humans use these blueprints to make our world greener, safer, more efficient, and more fun for future generations to come! Artificial intelligence in the form of their digital friend Giles helps them along the way – Giles provides clues that will lead them to the answers behind the most puzzling questions, and also hooks them up with scientists, researchers, and developers from across the world who tell us more about the each item or technology.
Robert and Isabel!
Robert demonstrated a few experiments for us during the show and tell which was so awesome! I wanted Y to volunteer but she was shy. :)
More of these on Wild But True!
To better understand concepts, features, and abilities intrinsic in the wild world, Robert and Isabel will also create and participate in fascinating experiments. Kids everywhere will be awed as they discover the impact animals have on humans. Tune in and join the dynamic duo as they reveal where and how nature has helped make our lives better and easier. Get ready for an adventure-filled journey across time, space, science, and nature that can only be described as Wild But True!

And can I just add this here. I posted this on my IG and I want to put it here again. I was really moved and touched (at naiyak talaga ako) at what the mom said about her kids. The Irwin family lives in Australia Zoo, they do distance learning program.
What her kids won't tell us about it this: They're both straight A students and you can really here how the mom is so proud about her children's achievements. Robert is 10 and is 2 years ahead of his class and is in Grade 7 while Bindi is taking college courses! How amazing! They are truly blessed to have each other.
We got to have a photo with the family! Don't forget to watch!
