Sid the Science Kid Event and a Giveaway!

With two active & inquisitive boys, I can use all the help I can get to quench their never ending thirst to learn new things.  It's not uncommon for family movie night to be the latest new show on the Discovery Channel, PBS or other Science show - it's just the way things are around here!  I grew up loving Fraggle Rock, the Muppets and other Jim Henson productions... so when I heard about Sid the Science Kid (on PBS), I knew it was a winning combination! 

On June 21st you can catch the premier of "No School Singalong Special".  To celebrate the premiere, Sid will be available at the Jim Henson Family Day at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles on May 22 from 10 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on Fandango or here, Adult tickets are $11 each and kids are $9 each.

Here's the schedule for the day:
10:00 AM: Co-presented by the Producers Guild of America/New Media Council as part of the Saturday 2.0 series, a screening will take place of A Better World: Living in Harmony beginning with a rarely seen episode of “Fraggle Rock” (1983), the TV series that contrasts three communities - the musical Fraggles, the industrious Doozers, and the giant Gorgs - who all co-exist in a carefully balanced underground world far below those mysterious silly creatures who live above ground (the humans). Next is "Song of the Cloud Forest" (1989) directed by Jim Henson which features a blend of music, puppetry and animation resulting in a vibrant landscape of color that echoes the natural beauty found in the real world's rain forest. Starring a brightly colored cast of puppet animals, the show celebrates the beauty of this natural environment while educating the audience of the real dangers threatening the survival of both the rain forest and its inhabitants.
11:30 AM: Premiere of “Sid the Science Kid:” “No School Singalong Special!”
12:00 PM: Premiere of “Dinosaur Train:” “Pteranodon Family World Tour,” “Gilbert the Conductor”
12:30 PM: “Wilson & Ditch: Digging America:” Two comical gopher brothers explore America
12:45 PM: “The Possibility Shop:” Creative Guru Courtney Watkins demonstrates how to turn ordinary afternoons into extraordinary creative adventures for the whole family
*10:30AM – 2:30PM Activity stations and photo opportunities in the courtyard
