Enter the Space Race, an Action-Packed Web Series for Kids! (Plus, a Solar System Poster Giveaway)

April is Journey to Space Month, which is a perfect time to introduce kids to a wonderful animated web series called Space Race! Each webisode, directed by Emmy Award winner Mark Risley, focuses on teaching kids about space through action-packed, fully animated shows. They’ll meet Eagle, Coot, Sabia and other animated spaceships as they experience adventures in space! Eagle Wingstrong, a young and adventurous “raceship,” is entering the first-ever race to Jupiter! Along the way, he must stop Vulture Albatross from destroying the solar system’s most valuable natural treasures. Kids will also meet Gary Galaxy, the human host of Space Race, who interviews each Space Race character and teaches kids amazing things about our solar system.

My boys really enjoyed watching Space Race! Anything space-related is fascinating to them, and they loved the combination of the space theme with racing! These webisodes are highly entertaining, fast-moving, and funny. In just a few days (April 29), Space Race will introduce its two newest webisodes -- "Asteroid Belt" and "Jupiter" -- to celebrate the launch of the real-life space shuttle Endeavor! (You can watch the launch live at www.ustream.tv/nasahdtv.)

Visit www.spaceracekids.com with your kids or students to view the exciting Space Race webisodes; play online games; get space-related flashcards, worksheets, and coloring pages; and, send Space Race e-cards! Your kids will love this exciting new web series!
