S

THE MAGIC HOUSE

id the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit! at the
Children's Museum of Atlanta immerses kids in the world of
the award-winning PBS Kids television series "Sid the Science
Kid."
The exhibit features fun, hands-on activities that encourage youngsters to use scientific tools to explore magnetic
fields, the laws of motion, air power and the five senses.
"Kids will be able to step into Sid's world and become
'science kids' themselves as they discover and investigate everyday science questions around Sid's home, at school in the
Super Fab Lab and on the playground," says Karen Kelly, director of exhibits and education for the Children's Museum of
Atlanta. "It's truly a hands-on, minds-on science experience that
encourages them to do, not just work an app."
The exhibit, presented in collaboration with the Jim Henson Co., continues through Jan. 15, 2018. For more information,
visit childrensmuseumatlanta.org or call (404) 659-5437.
