DVD Review and Giveaway: Janet's Planet--Exploring Microgravity

 



From Janet Ivey
“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.”  

My Review:
I enjoyed watching this DVD with my sons who love science. In this DVD, Janet explains about microgravity (aka weightlessness or Zero-G). She also talks about the difference between mass and weight. You will see kids trying to describe microgravity and then you get to hear from an expert (scientist) what microgravity really is. The DVD also introduces famous scientists from the past such as Henry Cavendish, Sir Isaac Newton, and Galileo. Janet gives interesting facts regarding what astronauts have to deal with in space. It was fun watching her experience weightlessness during a parabolic flight (lasting only 20-25 seconds) on a Boeing 727 cargo aircraft. This DVD is both educational and entertaining. Great for homeschoolers and any families with kids who like science, especially space exploration! By the way, check out Janet's cool website! You can watch this DVD online (click Video & Music), create your own planet, ask Janet questions, play a game similar to Jeopardy, participate in "do good" projects, etc.
