Ready Jet Go! is a series that follows three neighborhood kids: Sean, who has an all-consuming drive for science facts; Sydney, who has a passion for science fiction and imagination; and their 4-year old neighbor Mindy, who has lots of questions about space. They befriend the new kid on their street, Jet Propulsion, whose family happens to be aliens from the planet Bortron 7. Together, they explore the solar system, learning about friendship and teamwork along the way.
Ready Jet Go! is designed to build on children’s curiosity about science, technology and astronomy. The series features fun stories that help kids learn a variety of Earth science concepts – such as gravity, sound waves, and force – and demonstrates technology such as telescopes, the Mars rovers and robots. At the heart of every episode is a basic, kid-friendly question about our solar system, our galaxy and the universe, In the show, the characters often use the scientific method to find the answers to their questions.
Amazing Aurora is a live and interactive planetarium show. Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? Find out why these swirling lights appear in our night sky and visit other places in the solar system where they can be found!
