Introduction by Dr. Alice Monet, President of the Friends of the Planetarium: Star Talk- Learn about Parallax (10-15 minutes)

 

Schoolhouse Rock® Multiplication Rock, PLUS Powers of Ten

It’s a math double feature!  Remember looking forward to Schoolhouse Rock® on Saturday mornings and then singing its songs all week long?  Share the fun with your children as they watch the math and multiplication episodes.   This first season of Schoolhouse Rock® debuted in 1973 and taught counting and multiplying numbers from two through twelve. The catchy tunes and animated graphics taught generations of children math basics in a memorable way. Powers of Ten will be shown as a brief preview to the main show taking us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous 1968 film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only as a speck of light among many others. In 1998, Powers of Ten was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Suitable for family audiences.  Schoolhouse Rock® is targeted to children in grades K-5.

Total Running time:  approximately 1 hour
