Remember last year when I was jetting around the country like I had no responsibilities with Nickelodeon for their Nickelodeon Genius show? Well now you all get to be a part of the show as well because it airs tomorrow on Nicktoons (DSTV channel 308) at 15h00! I can not wait for you guys to follow the journey of these amazing kids!
It was so incredible watching just how super smart every single child was who competed because even the easiest questions were tough.It was also so encouraging to see how many kids love maths and science and how many are achieving such amazing things in the face of adversity.
Watch in amazement as trios of South Africa’s cleverest kids go head-to-head in pursuit of the prestigious Nickelodeon’s Genius title, with the added incentive of R300, 000, and a visit to NASA headquarters in the USA to spend a day hanging out with an astronaut!
These smart kids definitely know their stuff, as they test their mettle against physics, algebra, calculus and life science questions that would leave many adults scratching their heads in puzzlement – participating in quick-fire quizzes and mental challenges in the search for the 2017 Nickelodeon’s Genius winners!
Thousands of kids from around the country entered this season of Nickelodeon’s Genius,but only 12 teams will get through to the final stages… Two qualifying teams from Johannesburg will be revealed during Friday’s broadcast.
Nail-biting and hugely entertaining, Nickelodeon’s Genius will leave you in awe at the brilliance of the contestants. This week’s episodes focuses on the Johannesburg regional heats, as ninety kids aged 11-16 from schools throughout the region gather at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown to take part in the Genius workshop and quiz knockout.
Nickelodeon’s Genius is hosted by Lihle Msimang and Thapelo Hlophe.
Obviously being personally involved in the regional rounds I have a few favourites and I am super excited to see if they make it through each round and ultimately make it to the finals.
