WYE MILLS – Travel "twice the speed of knowledge" when Janet’s Planet visits the Todd Performing Arts Center at Chesapeake College on Friday, April 5 at 7 p.m. This fun, educational adventure is presented as part of the TPAC Family Series. By focusing on science, technology, engineering, art and math, Janet’s Planet travels at the "speed of thought" and is designed to fuel S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) potential in elementary school kids. Already viewable on more than 144 public television stations nationwide, Emmy-award winning Janet Ivey tours her introduction to the wonders of the galaxy in performing arts centers and schools across the country.

The performance will feature an interactive presentation that will engage and challenge students. Available lesson plans are designed to integrate with Common Core standards, and are based on a curriculum endorsed by NASA and Space Florida. Order your tickets and get ready for an out of this world, galactic, imaginative learning adventure!

Whether today’s students go on to be artists, doctors or politicians, we know that the challenges their generation faces will demand creative solutions. We should fully expect that, in the coming decades, many of our best leaders will come from a combination of science and art.

Tickets for Janet’s Planet are $9. For more information, please call the TPAC Box Office at 410-827-5867.
