Sid The Science Kid

Sid The Science Kid

'Sid the Science Kid' uses comedy to celebrate children's natural curiosity about science and explores their 'Why?' questions in everyday life. It features the energetic and inquisitive five-year-old Sid, who tackles the ideas that preschoolers find fascinating (Why do bananas go 'bad'? How does my juice box straw work? How does a bird fly without a plane?). In each episode, viewers meet Sid's friends and family who help him find the answers to these questions.
