SID THE SCIENCE KID is an educational animated television series that uses comedy to promote exploration, discovery and science readiness among preschoolers. This landmark production of 40 half-hour episodes, co-produced by The Jim Henson Company and KCET/Los Angeles for PBS KIDS & debuted on September 1, 2008, as part of the popular PBS KIDS preschool destination, the hosted two-hour morning block and online destination. SID THE SCIENCE KID, The Jim Henson Company's first series for PBS KIDS that features a practical in-school science curriculum, uses music and humor to celebrate children's natural curiosity about science in everyday life. The energetic and inquisitive Sid starts each episode with a new question ("Why are my shoes shrinking?" "Why do bananas get mushy?") and embarks on a fun-filled day of finding answers with the help of family and friends.
PBS KIDS and The Jim Henson Company recently launched the Sid’s Science Fair App for iPhone and iPod touch, which is available now on the App Store. Based on SID THE SCIENCE KID, the app encourages children ages 3 to 6 to explore and experience science.
