Send your kids to space with the Science Guys!  Using a huge Hoberman sphere, we'll create the earth’s rotation as it spins through space, simulate how day and night occur, learn how long a year is, and demonstrate what causes the seasons.  This show is all about the Earth's place in the universe, but we'll also blast off rockets to learn about the vacuum of space and how astronauts live in the international space station!

The Science Guys of Baltimore started in 2016 and offers exciting and accessible children’s science programming year-round throughout the Maryland and DC area.  To learn more, please visit them online at   

The educational content in this show is recommended for Ages 7-11 (Grades 2-5).
