Sid Wish your kid would put down the remote?

Though this blog is devoted to television, we at Show Tracker realize there is a world outside of what appears on the screen.  

One of those worlds is science.

Since 2008, one curious youngster has merged the TV and science worlds to the delight of tykes tuning in to PBS Kids. The computer-generated “Sid the Science Kid,” which will premiere new episodes starting Oct. 4, tackles basic scientific principals and, in simple terms, explains why things work the way the do.

And for those L.A.-area kids who like charts, measuring and all that science stuff, Sid is coming to the California Science Center on Sept. 26 for “Sid the Science Kid Day,” encouraging the city’s pint-sized children to explore their inner scientist.

The event is free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
