Show Notes

Students can visit our planetary neighborhood this month — without even leaving the Perot Theatre.

“Janet’s Planet: A Tour of the Solar System” is a show with a purpose, to encourage children to engage with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) subjects.

Longtime science educator Janet Ivey-Duensing, the show’s creator and host, knows how to make the process a blast.

She and Karl also talked about how to prepare for the April 8, 2024, total solar eclipse and what to expect when it happens.

The show is just one part of the Janet’s Planet brand, which also includes online programming, a podcast and summer camps. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Ivey-Duensing has won multiple awards and honors for her work, most recently the American Astronomical Society’s Sally Ride Excellence in Education Award.
