Mr. Genius Tours the Solar System
This favorite that we show to the elementary school groups that visit the planetarium. (It will be shown at public shows on Saturday September 10th and 17th in Fall 2005). The jokes are silly and there is a lot of basic information about astronomy, especially the planets.
Adults enjoy the show as much as kids do. Children as young as 6 years old generally can sit through the 1-hour show. The "Mr. Genius" show is about 25 minutes long, and during the rest of the time a live host talks about the current night sky and answers questions.
