If you have a child who is grade school-aged or older and enjoys discovery-type shows, then this would be an interesting series to watch together. The Human Spark does not present any concepts that are too advanced, but it also is not geared towards young children. You may need to explain the significance of some of the findings being discussed in parts of each segment.
If you have your own ideas about what makes humans human, then you can share your thoughts with The Human Spark. Share Your Spark by submitting your photos & artwork, videos, or original writing here. Your submission could be selected to be included on the Human Spark website. Make sure you read the Share Your Spark rules before making your submission.
