Moon Face/Lone Star 2 - Rocket Kids!

Fri, Mar 29 7:00 A.M. NHPBS      

The kids observe the full Moon at night and wonder why it seems to have a "face." They research why the light and dark splotches seem to make a face, and ultimately decide to fly to the Moon's surface so they can see for themselves what the light and dark splotches are made of. The kids are digging again down by the Lake, and dig up a part of an old rocket. This leads Sydney to tell another "Lone Star" story, this one about how long ago, when Boxwood Terrace was called "Boxwood Territory," early astronomer Lone Star engineered and built the first rockets. This inspires the kids to engineer and build their own "foot rocket."

About Ready Jet Go!:

READY JET GO! is a 3D animated series for 3-8 year-olds with a focus on astronomy, scientific exploration, innovation and invention, and Earth as it is affected by our solar system.

The show is about two neighborhood kids-one with an all-consuming drive for science fact and another with an overwhelming passion for science fiction.

They both befriend the new kid on their street, Jet Propulsion, whose family happens to be aliens from Bortron 7.

The comedy series teaches kids a variety of Earth science concepts (gravity, tides, moon phases, seasons) as well as an introductory explanation of innovation, astronomy, and our solar system.
