Sioux Falls teen lands MythBusters Jr. gig

A Sioux Falls teen is one of six kid stars on the first ever MythBusters Jr. The 10-episode series will air on the Science Channel. It premieres January 2.

Allie Weber is a 13-year-old who goes to Middle School in Sioux Falls. She actually used to be the KSFY kid expert. While she is still an expert, she doesn't appear on KSFY Morning News as often now (apparently she has bigger shows calling her name.)

The South Dakota teen is a multiple award-winning, patent pending inventor, builder, and maker. In 2017 Allie was recognized as one of the 21 under 21 girls who are changing the world by Teen Vogue magazine and was also recognized by 3M as one of the top 10 young scientists in the country.

MythBusters Jr. is a knock-off of the popular show MythBusters. Adam Savage returns to television as the shows host and executive producer. The six accomplished kids will tackle myths similar to those seen in MythBusters, ranging from driving, explosions, chemistry, physics, popular culture and more.
