Field Trip: Planetarium: General Audience
Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet returns to the Morrison Planetarium! This show is appropriate for grades 3-12, and runs through March 13, 2018.
A sweeping geological journey, Earthquake explores the forces that transform the surface of our planet. After a stunning flight over the San Andreas Fault, audiences travel back in time to experience San Francisco's infamous 1906 earthquake. Data-driven visualizations illustrate Earth's story, revealing how subtle motions and sudden ruptures have shaped our planet over eons—and how geological activity influences the course of human history. Finally, see how scientists and engineers help society prepare for a safer future.
Although this show was designed for general adult audiences, the subject matter may be appropriate for upper elementary, middle school, and high school grades.
