Orbit Earth Expo launched in Kentucky in 2017. Based in Independence, the program delivers content to elementary and middle schools all over the state. Teachers and administrators love the alignment to KAS standards and the unforgettable reference for students. These hard to teach concepts in astronomy are a snap for students when they are recalling information for the K-PREP tests after experiencing Orbit Earth Expo!
Orb, along with his Sun George and his appropriately scaled moon, travel to schools with their teacher friend Melanie Caldwell. Melanie graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She has spent the past 20 years caring for and educating children ages one to 14 and is proud to continue igniting a passion for learning in children through Orbit Earth Expo. Sharing the magic of these STEM programs with tens of thousands of students each year is rewarding and fun!
