Ready Jet Go!

Ready Jet Go! is a 40-episode animated television series and transmedia property for children ages 3-8 that focuses on space, earth science and technology. Created by Craig Bartlett, Ready Jet Go! tells the story of three neighborhood kids with an interest in science and science fiction, and their adventures with a new kid in the neighborhood, an alien named Jet Propulsion and his space-traveling family. The animated stories are paired with live-action interstitials featuring Dr. Amy Mainzer, an astronomer who introduces children to real-life scientists and space-exploration projects, sparking children's interest in science and illustrating that science is a diverse and collaborative field. Transmedia content includes at least five digital games and a mobile app that encourages kids to explore the night sky. Ready Jet Go! premiered on PBS KIDS in February 2016.
