Tilt is the latest Planetarium film at Scienceworks in Melbourne
teaches Children and adults why the "tilt" of the Earth is so important to our
planet, especially in relation to our seasons. Add in the planetarium
experience and Tilt is definitely an interesting experience.
The story of Tilt revolves around two siblings, Annie and Max who accidentally
damage Annie's science project on Earth's seasons which causes snow to fall in summer. As
the tilt of the Earth has been damaged, they must somehow find a way to
fix this problem and thankfully they are joined by Max's robot who takes them on an
amazing scientific journey that will eventually lead them to fixing the
edutainment planetarium film is definitely aimed at children but even adults will
learn a thing or two about the way seasons work on our planet and where
the sun sits during these times. It was
actually quite fascinating to learn, especially while lying down and
gazing at the planetarium ceiling.
unlike some other planetarium productions like The Problem with Pluto
or Black Holes, Tilt features some rather basic animation
which regrettably lets down the content of this feature.
Nonetheless with so much to do
and learn at Scienceworks in Melbourne, it's definitely adds another thing to your
agenda while visiting!
