At Liberty Science Center (LSC), young scientists can explore Sid’s world in the new show, “Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit.” It features areas from the hit PBS show created by Jim Henson that are familiar to children including Sid’s bedroom, kitchen, backyard, school room and playground. Children can think through the science they see around them every day, and explore answers to their questions. Through creative play and experimentation they will learn about simple machines, shapes, numbers, motion, magnetism, air power and their senses. Get there soon. The exhibit runs until May 15th.
Try out a magnifying glass and a microscope to look at bugs and more.
Build simple machines using pulleys and levers, like catapulting Sid’s toys into his toy box.
Test the laws of motion with a skateboard.
Climb into the Treehouse (great photo opp!).
Learn about good food choices by choosing health meals from the pantry and “baking cookies”.
Invent their own “Super-Duper-Ooper-Schmooper Big Idea”.
Sid will be on hand to greet his guests in person on Mar 19-20, Mar 22-25, May 7 and May 14-15. Parents should check at the Welcome Desk upon arrival for the location.
Meet-and-greets generally take place from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, but please check LSC.org a couple of days before your trip for any last minute changes.
