Darwin and Newts is an innovative and immersive New Zealand animated adventure series for kids who love to figure out how stuff works.
Through the curious siblings’ fantastic escapades, early learning science and engineering principles are woven into the stories as the characters use their trike, zipline and waka to navigate their world and explore the flora, fauna and natural wonders of their incredible home in Aotearoa.
We have created resources for every episode, including a science experiment and a craft activity through the form of short videos.
