Explore the wonders of the night sky from the comfort and security of your library. A fascinating and timely program suitable for all age groups. Our portable, inflatable Starlab mylar silver dome sets up easily in your library or gymnasium and brings a star filled planetarium to your site. Gaze upon our Northern Hemisphere, night sky, and more. Other popular topics that are available upon request include: The Moon, Native American Legends, African Skies, Greek Myths and Constellations, Skies of Ancient Egypt, and The Planets. We allow questions and answer time and our shows promote patron interaction. This is a quality educational program that is fully entertaining and will hold the attention of all ages. A 20x20 foot floor space and 10 foot ceiling height is required.
Do you think that Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin and American astronaut John Glenn were first into space? Think again! A little dog name Laika was the first animal to orbit the earth. In the early days of rocket science, no one knew what the effects of weightlessness would be. Dogs, cats, monkeys, and chimps were used to test the safety of launching a living being into space and bringing it back to earth unharmed. "Animal Astronauts" will feature a variety of live mammals, reptiles, and birds to provide a fascinating and unforgettable program. Our live animal shows typically draw the largest crowds of the summer for libraries' summer reading programs.
Our Universe Rocks
Music is always a popular and appropriate addition to your summer library line-up. This space-themed Rock and Roll show is a big hit with earthlings of all ages. Let's dance, clap, twist, and rock, in this fun, interactive, energizing concert. All music and vocals are performed live. Rock and Roll may have been invented here on planet Earth, but this program is out of this world!
Would you like a snack on Saturn? Got the munchies on Mars? No one delivers pizza in space! Eating in space presents unique challenges for astronauts. Why? There is no gravity! The first space foods were soft, like baby food, and packaged in tubes like toothpaste! Later, the technique of freeze-drying was developed. Astronauts now use hot water to make meals that are delicious and nutritious. Using special straws, trays, and Velcro straps (so their food doesn't float away), astronauts enjoy tasty meals so they can perform their important work in space. Suitable for all ages.
Our Amazing Universe
Meteors, comets, and asteroids are not the only rocks hurtling through space. This rock we live on is rotating around the sun at 67,000 miles per hour! Join the Captain as he travels through time and space from the heart of the sun, through the solar system, to the edges of our galaxy and beyond! Your patrons will journey through outer space to learn about planets, pulsars, stars, moons, meteors, quasars, galaxies, black holes, comets, asteroids, and more. A variety of visual props and models are displayed and can be set up in any facility.
Caribbean Steel Drums
OK, we admit it. This program has nothing to do with Outer Space! It has been included here because the Michigan Libraries LOVED this show during summer 2018. Caribbean Steel Drums is a unifying experience of singing, dancing, drumming, interaction, and excitement as offered by the African and Caribbean contributions to the world of music. This educational and unique program will be welcomed with enthusiasm, and is suitable for all ages and audiences.
