Janet's Planet: The Launchpad for Tomorrow's Scientists and Space Explorers!
By focusing on science, technology, engineering, art and math, Janet's Planet travels at the "speed of thought" and is designed to fuel S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) potential in elementary school age kids. Already viewable on more than 144 public television stations nationwide, Janet Ivey of Janet's Planet is excited to tour her introduction to the wonders of the galaxy in performing arts centers and Elementary schools across the country!
Janet is ready to present two educational live shows that promote S.T.E.A.M. curriculum: "Tour Through Our Solar System" for K-3, and "Exploring Microgravity" for grades 3-6. Each performance features an interactive presentation that engages and challenges students; each teacher is provided with lesson plans designed to integrate with Common Core standards, based on a curriculum endorsed by NASA and Space Florida. Book Janet's Planet in your performing arts center or local schools this year and get ready for an out of this world, galactic, imaginative learning adventure!
Whether today's students go on to be artists, doctors or politicians, we know that the challenges their generation faces will demand creative solutions. We should fully expect that, in the coming decades, many of our best leaders will come from a combination of science and art!
Janet's Planet is encouraging innovation in students worldwide.
