Welcome to Janet's Planet!  This website will create a spark of excitement for science for you and your children!  Here is a message from Janet:

“For the past decade, science education has been my passion and America’s children have been my inspiration.  It is incredible to see how excited children can become about the world around them when the information is presented in an accessible and fun way.  That is the mission of Janet’s Planet, and I look forward to continuing to support better science education in the years to come.”  

At the website, you will find the following:
  • Explore amazing photos in the Space Photo Log
  • Test your knowledge and learn something new at the Speed of Thought game
  • Create your own planet

  • Ask Janet questions and see what others are curious about
  • Janet's Planet Space Store

Ah, videos!  That's where I come in.  I was given the DVD for Exploring Microgravity to review and share with my readers.  Janet does a great job in this DVD explaining all about microgravity in a fun and easy way.  My son (age 13) and I loved listening to Janet.  She takes something that could be complicated and has it make so much sense!  We loved all of the cool examples she provided so we could see how microgravity works and how it is in our world.  This video, and the others on the site, can easily be used as part of a science curriculum, to enhance a lesson, or just for some extra knowledge!

Although you can watch the DVD, Exploring Microgravity in its entirety on the website, you may purchase it for $13.49 at the website store if you want to have your own copy that you can take with you in the car to watch or play on the TV.  Don't forget to enter the giveaway below for your chance to win your own copy for free!  So, visit Janet's Planet to check out all the amazing features and have fun!  You can also get connected on Facebook and Twitter.
