Newton is a science programme for children and young people. The target group is from 8 to 12 years, that is to say children who have either entered puberty or are about to. In the series about puberty we convey openly and frankly what happens to the body in the transition from child to adult. How the skeleton grows, why girls bleed, about spots and blushing and involuntary ejaculations. What happens to breasts and sexual organs, how the voice changes and how emotions are in turmoil. In short, how the human body grows and changes from child to adult in order to make babies. The final episode deals with how conception happens. Breeding is the biological point of puberty, and thoughts on sex are part of puberty. With the aid of models, we show, as clinically and pragmatically as possible, how the sexual act plays out. We see this as a part of Newton's mandate to inform children about this aspect of the human body and biology.
