Long Description: 
Sid is thoroughly amused as he watches his parents. Every time their computers "ding" Mom and Dad run to check their computer, so Sid wants to know what all these computers do! Mom volunteers to show Sid's class how a computer works, which helps Susie demonstrate the amazing way scientists use computers as a science tool! In a special Super Fab Lab, the kids make discoveries with their magnifying glasses then use the computer to share their discoveries by sending information back home to their parents. They're just like real scientists using a computer to share discoveries with other scientists!
