Summary
  • What's Up In Space? introduces young learners to the solar system. These fascinating topics are presented at a developmentally appropriate level, using a combination of live action, colorful illustrations and computer created animations. Each program answers important questions in space science using the latest research and are in line with the National Science Education Standards
  • Exploring space: From the first rockets sent into space to the latest missions to Mars, this program presents the history of space travel. The program will explain the technology used to launch people into space, landmark missions by countries around the world and recent scientific findings -- all designed for kids
  • Earth: Introduces children to the planet where we live. In addition to discussing Earth's place in the solar system, this program explains the basics of Earth Science, including atmosphere, weather, rock cycle, erosion and the water cycle
