From Cynopsis Kids:

Buzz Lightyear has a big weekend coming up as he, actually a 12-inch Buzz action figure, heads for the Space Station aboard NASA’s Space Shuttle Discovery, which is set to liftoff from Kennedy Space Center this Saturday, May 31 at 5:02p. Buzz’s adventure is part of the Space Ranger Education series, which in turn is part of NASA’s Toys in Space initiative. So, while Buzz is on his “to infinity and beyond” trip, he will help introduce facts from space to kids in science and math classes nationwide. The toys in Space program builds on NASA’s effort to encourage kids to study science, technology and math subjects. Developed by Disney and NASA, Toys in Space includes downloadable materials for educators to use in class as well as online, educational games linked to each key component of the mission. The series can be accessed via www.nasa.gov , and will be available throughout 2008. Ah, yes, the mission also coincides with the official opening of the Toy Story Mania! attraction at Walt Disney World this Saturday and on June 17 at Disneyland Resorts California.

Capitalize on this kooky NASA initiative by giving juvenile books on space, science, technology and math deserve their own space in the sun.
