Ready Jet Go! Takes You To The Stars
Posted on Tue, 3/30
The PBS KIDS's show Ready Jet Go! follows two neighborhood kids: Sean, who has an all-consuming drive for science facts, and Sydney, who has a passion for science fiction and imagination. They both befriend the new kid on their street, Jet Propulsion.
Curiosity about space starts very early. As soon as kids are old enough to look up at the night sky, they begin to wonder: What's up there? Is there life far away? Can we get there? Luckily Jet Propulsion is an alien boy from the planet Bortron 7 and he can answer those questions!
Ready Jet Go! is an entertaining first introduction to space, earth science and technology. Kids learn alongside Jet, a seasoned space traveler, who sees our planet Earth like we want our kids to see it: with a sense of curiosity and wonder.
Geared for children ages 3-8
