Take a guided tour of the night sky! This show covers the current constellations, planets, and celestial events currently visible in Manitoba skies. The show is presented live by Planetarium staff, allowing current news and the latest discoveries to be highlighted.
In My Backyard with Fred Penner
A classic returns! Join Winnipeg’s best-known children’s entertainer, Fred Penner, as he explores things large and small, from the colors of the rainbow, to the reasons for the seasons. The show has been completely re-imagined for the DIGISTAR fulldome video system. Young scientists are encouraged to sing along with entertaining songs and participate while learning about the planets, constellations, meteors, the moon and more. Recommended for children ages 4-7.
Ice shapes our world. It drives the climate, affects ocean currents, and reshapes land as it expands during ice ages. But ice melt from climate change is transforming our way of life. Explore these
changes and see Greenland without its ice shield. Travel to other worlds like Saturn, Titan and Europa to see how ice has shaped their landscapes.
Zula Patrol: Down To Earth
The zany cast of Zula Patrol stop a notorious polluter – and also learn about the formation of our planet and the evolution of its many life forms. The Zula Patrol: Down to Earth is based on the award-winning TV series, The Zula Patrol, now reaching 300 million households worldwide. This 35-minute show is designed for families with younger children and includes a short introduction to the current night sky.
