Blast Off! Space Nova Launches on ABC ME
Teachers, here is something for the young astrophiles in your class: ABC ME is screening a Space Nova marathon from 7:55am on Good Friday.
It’s the year 2162, and life is a blast for space adventuring siblings, Jet and Adelaide Nova and their parents, Josie and Hugo. During a routine research mission, these intrepid Aussie astronauts stumble across an abandoned alien space craft. They also discover that the craft is powered by a rainbow substance that’s so powerful, it sends the ship zipping away at speeds humanity never dreamed possible. But although the Novas were unable to capture the craft, or the ‘Star Dust’ that powered it, they now know that there is an advanced, intelligent species out there, able to travel the universe in the blink of an eye. If only they can find them…
The engaging storylines in this new animated series will develop primary students’ science knowledge while watching a show they love. Upcoming support materials for the series will link to the primary Science curriculum – science understanding, science as a human endeavour and science inquiry skills – with a focus on space sciences.
Space Nova airs on ABC ME from Friday 02 April at 7:55am.
