About Science



In Ohio, fifth grade Earth and Space Sciences cover rotation, revolution, and tilt, the planets, and the nature of stars. About Science reinforces the ideas of mass and gravity and how the two are related when it comes to spherical objects in the solar system before moving on to how the tilt of Earth's axis and its revolution change the length of our days and cause the seasons.


As with all programs at the Planetarium, basic stars and constellations also are covered.
