Ready Jet Go! is a new television show from PBS Kids that will be debuting on WQED on Monday, February 15, and WQED is teaming with Carnegie Science Center to offer a special day of activities around it.
Ready Jet Go! takes viewers on a journey into outer space, building on children’s curiosity about science, technology and astronomy. The series 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, whose family members happen to be aliens from the planet Bortron 7. Together, they explore the solar system and the effects it has on the science of our planet, while learning about friendship and teamwork along the way.
Shows in the Science Stage will combine segments of Ready Jet Go! with live science demonstrations. Activity tables just outside the Science Stage will feature stickers, coloring sheets, and make-and-takes. The shows are scheduled hourly on Monday, February 15, starting at 11:00 am. The last show will be at 2:00 pm in the Science Stage. Ready Jet Go! is free with admission cost. For more information, visit Carnegie Science Center’s Ready Jet Go! event page.
