MEET THE CHARACTERS

Sid

As the star of our show, Sid does two things that make him the perfect scientist... he observes the world around him, and he asks LOTS of questions. And like a budding comedian, Sid's observations and questions are FUNNY (in a preschool kind of way).

 

Gabriela

Gabriela doesn't walk into a room, she makes an entrance. With her hand dramatically gesturing into the air, she'll happily announce her arrival, "Gabriela is here!" And don't let the puffy pink tutu she wears over jeans fool you... she's no girlie girl. In fact, she's an athletic, rough and tumble aspiring "rock star scientist" (whatever that is).

 

Gerald

When everyone else walks across the room, Gerald pretends to be a bulldozer and "vroom vrooms" somersaulting over the floor. The perfect run-on sentence to describe Gerald would be: "Total instant gratification - boundless boy energy - raises his hand on every question even if he doesn't know the answer - gotta do it right now!"

 

May

She's a very sweet, empathetic kid, with a wonderful imagination. This gives her the ability to come up with the alternative, or unexpected answer. When everyone is furiously digging into the sand, getting frustrated that they can't sculpt it into the shape of a horse, it's May who calmly offers, "Try mixing in some water, that might help."

 

Miss Susie

Could she be the best preschool teacher ever? Yes! She makes science FUN! She's warm, and fun, and playful. She's also patient and very smart. Susie is our ultimate source of science knowledge, gives science definitions, explains "the science" of the episode, and helps us perform actual experiments.
