Mecha Builders Launch Screenings | Space Discovery Centre | 16-23 Oct 2022

Mecha Builders – Free Screenings 

New spin-off show, Sesame Street Mecha Builders, will be launching at Adelaide’s Space Discovery Centre for a FREE event this October.

Sesame Street’s first-ever 3D CGI spinoff combines lovable characters and a STEM curriculum for kids. Season One premiered Monday 3 October 2022 on ABC Kids, and will also be available on ABC iview and the ABC Kids app.

Sesame Street Mecha Builders reimagines Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Abby Cadabby as robot heroes-in-training who use their STEM superpowers to solve larger-than-life problems. Animated in a dynamic 3D style, the series will help kids practice foundational critical thinking skills while laughing along with their Sesame Street friends.

Across 26 episodes – each containing two complete 11-minute stories – the friends get into all kinds of silly situations, whether they’re using a wedge to split a giant banana for an ice cream statue or learning how to measure cables for a zipline through the trees. 

The series introduces children to STEM concepts like simple machines, force, and properties of matter, illustrated with help from the Mechas and their unique powers. 


To celebrate the series launch, the Australian Space Discovery Centre is running exclusive screenings of the brand new show, so go along to check out your favourite characters in action, and participate in the Mecha colouring-in station.
