Janet’s Planet “Exploring Microgravity” is a winner of a Regional Emm Award, a Gracie Allen Award and a STEMFlorida Award.   It’s a 37-minute exploration of gravity and microgravity.

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.  Gravity’s phenomena and effects are explained and the audience gets to meet Galileo, Newton, and Cavendish and find out how they built on the scientists before them and formed a shared picture of how the universe works!  You’ll also get a chance to see Janet onboard the Zero G plane experiencing microgravity!

Exploring Microgravity is supported with integrated curriculum and teachers are provided with a lesson plan designed to integrate with Common Core standards, based on curriculum endorsed by NASA and Space Florida.

Even though our daughter is a high school junior we thought it would be fun to watch this video for one of our physics classes.  We thought the show was highly informative, with clear explanations, examples and lessons from history.  It is formatted in such a way to be engaging and somewhat humorous, and should hold the attention of young children and even aid older students in understanding the discussed ideas.
