About Dexter
DEXTER is a techno-geeky Fourth Grader. If there’s a new APP, then DEXTER already knows about it. That’s one reason he always has his PDA in hand and fully charged. Like some techies, DEXTER downloads public transit source codes and develops his own programs so he knows exactly where his bus is when he needs it. Back in New York, he rode the MTA. But now that DEXTER lives in Atlanta he rides MARTA to get around town so he can buy parts for his cool inventions such as his new brother’s sports wheelchair.

Dexter's Random Facts
  • Dexter hates to see Kix sad
  • He made gifts for all the transit explorers (Kix’s ball so she wouldn’t get bored, DJ’s watch, Whizzie’s laptop, Wheel’z wheelchair)
  • Dexter is a softy, he has a big heart and loves his bros and sisters
  • Socially, he is a hermit and his fellow transit explorers are his safety net at school
  • He doesn’t get teased at school, but he’s definitely not the most popular guy either
  • When he’s in the “zone”, he only cares about his work, all his physical needs (like the need to eat and sleep) go away and he only wants to work
  • After hanging with the transit explorers, his favorite thing to do is be alone in his lab
