Sid the Science Kid is an award-winning educational animated television series that uses comedy and music to promote exploration, discovery and science readiness among preschoolers. This landmark production of 66 half-hour episodes, produced by The Jim Henson Company for PBS Kids, debuted on Sept. 1, 2008, and has since been honored with five Emmy nominations and multiple prestigious awards (most recently the CINE Golden Eagle Award). Sid the Science Kid features a practical in-school science curriculum and celebrates 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. Each episode of "Sid the Science Kid" focuses on a single scientific concept that is presented using Preschool Pathways to Science (PrePS), a practical science readiness curriculum used in preschool classrooms that was created by cognitive researchers and preschool educators, incorporating lessons learned from developmental research as well as classroom experience.
