Borderless Arts TN participants had the pleasure of working with Janet Ivey of Janet’s Planet through the Beyond Space Arts Festival in making a Lunar Lander. This project was a great deal of fun and educational for all.

Janet Ivey is committed to enriching the lives of children through education and programming. With over ten years in the media, Ivey has captivated Nashville and beyond with her work and she has received 11 Regional Emmys and 5 Gracie Allen awards for her work.

Most notably, Janet Ivey has been recognized for her work on NashvillePublic Television children’s series Janet’s Planet, an interstitial series she helped create. This dynamic and fast-paced series is geared to 6 – 10 year-olds and focuses on scientific and historical facts and events. Viewers get to travel at the speed of thought and the interstitials air throughout the day between acclaimed children’s shows like “Zoom,” “Maya and Miguel,” and “Arthur.” (Janet’s Planet can be seen on 100+ public television stations nationwide.)

Buzz Aldrin has chosen Janet to be one of his ShareScience Education Ambassadors for his ShareScience Foundation because of her enthusiasm and dedication for science education.
