The official description of Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab:
The animated series follows Angie, a 12-year-old prodigy and her young science club who accidentally discover Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab – a ‘tricked out’ dream lab equipped with gizmos and gadgets, including two of Edison’s very last inventions: a hologram that brings Mr. Edison himself “to life,” and a virtual reality machine that lets them go anywhere. It even has a wacky (and slightly nervous) robot called Von Bolt, who becomes part of every adventure. In each of the episodes, Edison encourages and inspires the kids in scientific and technological explorations, including physical science, life science, earth science, space science and other fun and engaging areas.
