About the Movie
After winning a science fair contest for creating an awesome science experiment, Sid and Gabriela are named “Junior Investigators” and get a special viewing of the new Super Ultimate Science Museum before it opens to the public. When Sid and Gabriela are introduced to Yangyang and Niuniu, the impressive big-kid “Future Scientist” contest winners from China, they start to wonder if they really know their science stuff.
Quirky scientist Dr. Bonabodon and his robot tour guides of the future lead the way in the museum, including Bobbybot, his greatest creation. But after their robot tour guide short circuits, Sid, Gabriela, Yangyang, and Niuniu have to work together and use science to try to save the day.
Together, they learn that you can be a scientist at any age and that thinking like a kid is sometimes the best way to solve a problem!
Featuring the guest voice talents of
Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) as Dr. Bonabodon!
We can't wait to see you there!

Mississippi Public Broadcasting
Mississippi Public Broadcasting has always been at the cutting edge. Whether as Mississippi’s first statewide broadcast system or as the first to complete the conversion to digital technology, MPB has remained ahead of the curve. This commitment to innovation can be found in everything we do, especially in our education department’s work on innovative methods of improving education for teachers and students alike.
A Brief History of MPB: In 1969 the Mississippi Authority for Educational Television (MAET) was established by the Mississippi State Legislature with the mission of providing "educational and instructional professional growth and public service programs for the students and citizens of Mississippi." MAET first hit the airwaves in 1970 as Mississippi Educational Television (ETV), and has served Mississippi ever since, providing quality educational television programming that links our state's communities together. Over the years the face of the organization has evolved as we have added radio and news programming and established a robust education department focused on providing educational resources and curriculum to Mississippians of all ages.
Known as Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) since 2003 when Mississippi ETV and Public Radio in Mississippi (PRM) merged, the organization has been a leader in informational broadcasting. Through our award-winning productions, our educational resources, and our acclaimed hurricane coverage and response operation, MPB has exhibited a commitment to educating and informing Mississippians.
