ONE WORLD, ONE SKY:BIG BIRD’S ADVENTURE

 

Explore the night sky with our friends from Sesame StreetTM.  Join Big Bird, Elmo, and Hu Hu Zhu as they take an imaginary trip to the Moon.  See how the Moon is different from the Earth and learn how to find the Big Dipper and North Star from your backyard.   "One World, One Sky" comes to us through a generous grant from the PNC Foundation and their "Grow Up Great" program.  

 

SPIRITS IN THE SKY, THUNDER ON THE LAND

Come with us on a never-before-seen journey into the culture of the Pawnee Native American Nation, who lived in what is now Nebraska and northern Kansas from the 1600’s to 1876. Their culture grew of out their legends and lore of skywatching.  The show takes you inside a Pawnee earth lodge through the development of the agricultural calendar and the Pawnee creation legend.
