Beginning September 24, kids can join Sid the Science Kid on an amazing scientific adventure when Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit! opens at Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum! This exciting new traveling exhibit brings the award-winning PBS KIDS
TV series Sid the Science Kid to life. For the first time ever, kids will be able to step into Sid’s world and become “science kids” themselves as they discover and investigate everyday science questions around Sid’s home, at school in the Super Fab Lab and on the playground. Through fun, hands-on activities, kids will use scientific tools and thinking to learn about simple machines, the laws of motion, magnetism, air power and the five senses. It’s sure to be a super-duper-ooper-schmooper good time!
“With the support of our local sponsors, Discovery Gateway is honored to bring this interactive exhibit to our community,” said Executive Director Laurie Hopkins. “Children of all ages will enjoy becoming science kids by exploring science, technology, engineering, and math in Sid’s world.”
To celebrate the opening, Discovery Gateway members are invited to preview the exhibit and take photos with Sid the Science Kid on Friday, September 23 during museum hours from 10 am – 6 pm.
Discovery Gateway is also hosting Breakfast Time with Sid the Science Kid on Saturday, September 24 from 9 – 11 am.
