"What's hair for? How do birds fly?" Thanks to Sid the Science Kid, we'll learn the answers to those and many other burning questions. Like most preschoolers, 5-year-old Sid loves to observe and investigate objects and events that are part of daily life. In doing so, he learns that science is all around us. 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.
