Abstract: We have developed a presentation that investigates the differences in the atmospheres of Venus, Earth, and Mars, and how these differences arose. The target audience is elementary school age children. The presentation is a combination of planetary images displayed on engaging spherical displays and visual demonstrations. We recently tested and evaluated our preliminary presentation on the Lawrence Hall of Science's six-foot diameter Science on a Sphere.TM Our future plans include transferring this presentation onto a portable, table-top spherical display system to take into classrooms. We also plan to develop additional presentations targeting older age groups.
