GRADE 1                                                           

TOPIC: Creating Color

This program consists of  “ONE WORLD, ONE SKY” or “COSMIC COLORS” movie that followed by a related science talk and question/answer period. The duration of the program is 45 minutes that can be extend based on the school/Teacher requirement for extra charge.

TOPIC: Seasonal Changes/ Senses

This program consists of either THE WEATHER or THE ZULA PATROL movie that will be followed by a related science talk and question/answer period.

GRADE 2                                                            

TOPIC: Exploring Liquids

This program consists of one fulldome movie “THE H2O CYCLE” and one short movie “LIQUID / LIGHT / FLOW”. The science talk and question/answer period can be between the movies or after the short movie.

TOPIC: Magnetism

This program consists of the “Magnetism” movie w/ holding a famous meteorite sample and watching a model of Meteor Crater)

TOPIC: Hot and Cold Temperature

Is it cold or hot? What is the weather today? Students will learn about temperature by watching either “ZULA PATROL: Under the Weather” or “THE WEATHER” that followed by science talk and question/answer period.

TOPIC: Small Crawling and Flying Animals

Join us today in a journey to explore the life of small crawling and flying animals by booking “BUGS! A RAINFOREST ADVENTURE”. Absolutely, bugs are bizarre, beautiful, and an endless source of fascination. Alternatively, your students can enjoy the cheeky ladybug (DOLORES) and a quirky firefly (MIKE) that will take your students into the wondrous world of trees to reveals the magic of the microcosm while watching the movie “LIFE OF TREES”. Whatever you choose the movie will be followed by science talk and question/answer period.

GRADE 3                                                       

TOPIC: Rocks and Minerals 

This program consists of one fulldome movie “IMPACT” or one short movie “ASTEROID IMPACT MISSION”. The movie will be followed by a science talk (about rocks and minerals from earth and outer space, their properties and uses in our daily life) and question/answer period can be between the movies or after the short movie. Kids will enjoy holding and investigating samples of different rocks and minerals and a meteorite sample.

TOPIC: Building with A Variety Of Materials

This program will ignite your kid’s creativity and thinking starting by watching our full dome movie “FROM DREAM TO DISCOVERY” and ending with a science talk and question/answer period. No doubt that Kids will enjoy thinking, designing and acting as an engineer by building their own devices to travel to the outer space with us.

TOPIC: Animal Life Cycles

Let us go walking in the deep forests to study the insect’s life cycle by watching the “BUGS! A RAINFOREST ADVENTURE” movies or we have to wear our work jackets and travel across the polar area to watch the Bear life cycle and enjoying “LARS THE LITTLE POLAR BEAR” movie. Select the movie of your choice and our educator will give your students a talk about animal’s life cycle that will be followed by question/answer period.

GRADE 4                                                

TOPIC: Building Devices and Vehicles

Your students will be recruited today to be an engineer for the next unmanned NASA mission! Let us wear our astronaut suits and be ready to watch a series of short movies starting from “FIXING THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE” to “DESIGN A MISSION”. In the program, the students will design their own mission to either Mars or Saturn in search of water. However, the mission will either succeed or fail. So, buckle your seats and blast off with our education to discover some facts about Engineering designs and more. Book with us today to reserve your seat in our shuttle.

TOPIC: Light and Shadows

Energy comes in different types (Mechanical, Electric, Light, Thermal and Sound) and today we will be focusing on the light energy. Light is a wave of energy, and not all energy wavelengths are visible to the human eye. Audience will enjoy learning about light, its wavelengths and sources by watching the short movie “LIGHT “followed by a science talk and end up with a full dome movie “COSMIC ORIGINS SPECTROGRAPH”.

TOPIC: Plant Growth and Changes

Students can enjoy learning about plants by visiting the cheeky ladybug (DOLORES) and a quirky firefly (MIKE) that will take your students into the wondrous world of trees to reveals the magic of the microcosm while watching the movie “LIFE OF TREES”.
