SOLs vary by grade level
Explore the evening skies above Virginia in this classic planetarium presentation. Students view the planetarium’s night sky while a staff astronomer discusses seasonal constellations, visible planets and other celestial happenings around the time of your visit. This program can be tailored for any grade level and is especially effective for introducing kindergarteners to the planetarium experience.
Day and Night
Science SOLs K.8, K.10, 1.6, 1.7
Discover the importance of Earth’s shadow as a staff astronomer takes you on a journey from Day to Night.
Science SOLs 2.6, 2.7, 3.8, 3.9, 3.11, 4.6, 4.7
Journey through the solar system and learn all about the forces behind our home planet’s weather.
The Skies of Jamestown
History and Social Science SOLS 2.2, 2.6, VS.1, VS.2, VS.3
Discover the dangers of ocean travel in the early 1600s and learn how important the stars were to two cultures.
Science SOLs 3.8, 3.9, 3.11, 4.8
See the Earth through alien eyes as we learn about Moon phases, tides, Earth motions, seasons, and more.
Reasons for the Seasons
Science SOLs 3.8, 3.11, 4.8
Witness the power of the tilt of the Earth as one of our staff astronomers helps you explore the reasons for the seasons.
Worlds in Motion
Science SOLs 4.7, 4..8, 6.8
Explore why objects move across the skies of Earth, why Pluto is no longer a major planet, how fast you are moving when you’re sitting still and other amazing topics…all connected by these worlds in motion.
Two Small Pieces of Glass
Science SOLs 5.3, 6.8, PS.9, ES.3
Originally produced in celebration of the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s groundbreaking work with his telescope, this program takes your students on a journey through the history of telescopes, how they are made, and how they have helped astronomers make so many astounding discoveries about the universe. A brief look at the current night sky is included.
Oasis in Space
Science SOLs 6.8, ES.3
Discover the uniqueness of our home planet as we tour through the solar system, seeking that most basic necessity for life – water. Does water exist elsewhere in the solar system? Can life survive beyond the confines of Earth? These questions and more will be discussed in this visually stunning program about the origins and nature of the worlds that surround us.

|There are four grain phenotypes in the above ear of genetic corn: Purple & Smooth (A) , Purple & Shrunken (B) , Yellow & Smooth (C) and Yellow & Shrunken (D) . These four grain phenotypes are produced by the following two pairs of heterozygous genes ( P & p and S & s ) located on two pairs of homologous chromosomes (each gene on a separate chromosome):|
|Dominant Genes||Recessive Genes|
|P = Purple||p = Yellow|
|S = Smooth||s = Shrunken|
|The following Table 1 shows a dihybrid cross between two heterozygous parents ( PpSs X PpSs ). The four gametes of each parent are shown along the top and left sides of the table. This cross produced the ear of genetic corn shown at the top of this page. Table I is essentially a genetic checkboard called a Punnett square after R.C Punnett, a colleague of William Bateson who devised this method. In 1900, English Geneticist William Bateson had Gregor Mendel's original 1865 paper on the genetics of garden peas translated into English and published. Thus Mendel became known to the entire scientific world. Bateson is also credited with the discovery of gene linkage in 1905.|
|Table 1. This table shows four different phenotypes with the following fractional ratios: 9/16 Purple & Smooth (blue), 3/16 Purple & Shrunken (red), 3/16 Yellow & Smooth (green), and 1/16 yellow and shrunken (pink). There are nine different genotypes in the table: PPSS (1), PPSs (2), PpSS (2), PpSs (4), PPss (1), Ppss (2), ppSS (1), ppSs (2) and ppss (1). You can easily calculate the number of different phenotypes and genotypes in a dihybrid cross using the following formulae:|
