Product Review - Janet's Planet Science ( @JPJanetsPlanet )
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). 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 ideas of 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!
Also, for any teachers out there, Exploring Microgravity is supported with integrated curriculum and teachers are provided with a lesson plan designed to integrate with Common Core standards, based on a curriculum endorsed by NASA and Space Florida.
My Take on the Product
My girls are always looking for ways to understand the world around them and this CD makes the viewer become engaged in their own learning. When I played this CD to them they were very excited and sat glued to the screen from beginning to end. I found the CD to be very fast paced and full of so many interesting facts and information. I have to be honest and say that not only did my girls learn something, but so did I as I was not aware of the complexities of microgravity prior to this! This is a great CD that I would highly encourage all to listen to - you will definitely learn something new!
