Netflix made a big push into educational video when it picked up Scholastic's TV shows, and we now know that this effort has paid off -- The Magic School Bus has been "remarkably popular," Netflix tells the New York Times. It only makes sense, then, that the streaming media pioneer has just ordered a new take on Magic School Bus for its next original series. The 26-episode show, The Magic School Bus 360°, will modernize Ms. Frizzle's science classes for kids who are now surrounded by technology; robots and wearables (such as a biometric suit) will play a part. Your little ones will have to wait until 2016 to start watching, but that patience may pay off if it fosters an early interest in computer science and other high-tech fields.
