"We booked a half day with Jennie for our group of four and six year old kids...They all had a great time and we all got to do some adulting...- the best part of the weekend! Thanks Jennie!"

"Jennie was awesome and stargazing was a highlight of our vacation. She tailored the experience and kept my 3 and 5 year olds engaged. They sat still for 1 hour (!) learning about the stars. Now they repeat facts about black holes, the Milky Way and red giants. My husband and I loved it too."
