Overview

Eddie the Electron wants to educate kids everywhere about what it's like to be an electron! He's cute, super enthusiastic, ambitious, smaller than the tip of a pencil and he doesn't want to be confused with a proton or an atom.

Just what lengths will he go to be free? There's only one way to find out! Come along with us and learn about life in Eddie's world.
