Astronomy Podcast for Kids

By Phil Plait

I love it when kids get excited enough about science to go out and do something about it. Thatâs why Iâm digging Jeffrey Tangâwhoâs 10âbecause he created the Astronomy For Kids podcast, where he talks about different astronomical things. The first podcast went up in February ("The Solar System"), and heâs done others on stars, the moon, Saturn, and gravity. Theyâre only a few minutes long, perfect for a kid to listen to, and the ones I listened to were accurate and covered the ground pretty well. Theyâre also interesting and fun!

If you have a kid who likes science, I bet theyâll like this podcast. And I can see these being played in schools, too. Who better to connect with kids than another kid?
