Rockin' the Solar System
Organized by: Heather Panikkar
Rockin' the Solar System is a multimedia educational publication designed to spark children's curiosity about our universe. The album, videos, and accompanying book lead audiences on a trip through the solar system. On their planetary voyage, they encounter several genres of rock and dance. Rockin' the Solar System presents the fascinating qualities of each of the objects in our planetary neighborhood, sampling from a dozen genres of rock music. Each planet's unique features are described in factually correct, easy to understand and memorize lyrics. Designed to appeal to children 4-12, Rockin' the Solar System supports elementary school common core objectives. Created by professional performing artists and New York City school teachers, the songs' knowing nods to the greatest rock groups of all time makes learning the basics of astronomy fun for listeners of all ages. This fundraiser will support the final production costs for professional CDs, digital media, and print.
