A Tilted Earth

Annie and Max

This package includes the Tilt planetarium show and the Earth Moon and Sun science show, catering for an upper primary audience.

Tilt explores in a very visual way why we experience seasons using a space and Earth perspective. Students will also see how the Earth rotates on a tilted axis and why this causes the seasons on Earth. The show’s rich animations and narrative will engage students in some important astronomy concepts.

The included 30-minute, Earth, Moon and Sun science show uses audiovisual equipment and interactive demonstrations to show students how the Earth’s rotation on its axis affects the day and night cycle and how the changing positions of the Earth and Moon result in the phases of the Moon. Students will also be given the opportunity to explore in detail why we experience seasons on Earth.

This package is designed for students in upper primary.
