Season Finale Thursday, March 10 at 10 PM ET/PT on Lifetime

         Featuring America’s most extraordinary and gifted children as they prep for the ultimate battle of the brains. The season 2 competition, created in cooperation with American Mensa, has taken place over ten weeks and tests the nation’s brightest young minds on their knowledge in categories such as math, spelling, geography, and current events.

         With a $100,000 college fund and the title of Child Genius 2016 at stake, the kids – and their families – have stopped at nothing to make it to the top of the class. Former NASA astronaut, Leland Melvin, serves as the host.

         In the tenth and final week of the Child Genius competition, the three brightest kids in the nation face off in an Academic Olympiad, a brain busting compilation of all previous round topics, after which, one child will win a hundred thousand dollar college fund, and be crowned “Child Genius.”
