Out of this World
with the Science Guys of Baltimore
Wed.-Thurs., March 22-23, 2023 at 10:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
Ripley Center, Smithsonian
Recommended for Ages 7 to 11 / Grades 2 to 5

Once Upon a MoonSend 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!

Connections to the Classroom: Science (solar system, stars, rockets, visible light spectrum, forces of motion); STEAM; Call and Response; Theater/Performing Arts

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 2022-2023 Discovery Theater Season is made possible by generous grants from the Nora Roberts Foundation and the Smithsonian Women’s Committee.
