The Magic House is creating a new science-based traveling exhibit centered around PBS Kids' "Sid the Science Kid." "Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit!" will premiere in January 2014, according to a Magic House news release.
The exhibit is funded by a grant from the Monsanto Fund and will invite young scientists to explore the wonders of scientific discovery. Through fun, hands-on activities, kids will use scientific tools and thinking to explore the world around them. "Sid the Science Kid: The Exhibit" is being created in collaboration with The Jim Henson Company, the producer of "Sid the Science Kid."
"The Magic House is honored to have the support of the Monsanto Fund in the development of our newest exhibit," said Beth Fitzgerald, President of The Magic House. "Through their support we look forward to educating and inspiring kids of all ages in the wonders of science, technology, engineering and math."
"Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit!" will be free with museum admission and will remain at the museum through August 2014. After August, the exhibit will travel to other children's museums throughout the country. The Magic House has created three other traveling exhibits: "Once Upon a Time ... Exploring the World of Fairy Tales," "Super Kids Save the World" and "The Magic Tree House Exhibit."
