Sid uses humor to show young children that they can "do" their own science and make new discoveries every day. Sid the Science Kid, co-produced by The Jim Henson Company, is created by a revolutionary process known as "digital puppetry." Performers puppeteer and voice digital characters in real time using three-dimensional computer-generated images. This ground-breaking technology results in a unique and captivating style of animation. Join Sid, his family and his friends as they make science fun! For children 3 to 6 years old.
