Spend August with Ready Jet Go!

August is all about planetary sciences!

The first total eclipse of the sun in 99 years will happen on August 21. Even if young learners aren’t in the path of totality, they can join in the excitement and learn about our solar system by spending time with the crew at  Ready, Jet, Go!

Watch the premiere of Back to Bortron 7 on August 14, with repeat showings at August 16 and 18 (check your local listings to confirm show dates and times in your area). When Jet’s parents need to return to their home planet, Sean and Sydney join the Propulsion family on an epic adventure to Bortron 7!

Then check out the following educational activities for even more learning fun!
