LAS VEGAS, September 19, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Beginning Saturday, September 22, kids can join Sid the Science Kid on an amazing scientific adventure when "Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit!" opens at DISCOVERY 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!
“We are thrilled to welcome Sid the Science Kid to Las Vegas and share this exhibit with families visiting the museum,” said DISCOVERY Children’s Museum President and CEO Melissa Kaiser. “We are confident that Sid’s friendly face and familiar environment will spark guests’ curiosity to explore the world around them and encourage them to become science kids just like Sid.”
