You  are  Ground  Control,  and  Futuretron  is  asking  for  your  help  to  decide  the  future  of  a  new  planet.

Here’s  the  situation:  in  1974,  a  manned  mission  was  sent  into  space  to  look  for  inhabitable  planets.  Now,  in  present  day,  the  sensors  aboard  Shuttle  X27-40  indicate  that  it  may  have  found  just  such  a  planet.  The  three astronauts  on  board  are  about  to  be  woken  from  their  hypersleep  …They  need  your  help.

Using  a  giant  projection  screen  and  a  live,  highly  intelligent  computer  (well,  Futuretron),  you  will  be  part  of  a  team  deciding  on  an  identity  for  the  planet,  its  laws  and  values.  ground  control  is  a  unique  interactive  performance  for  7  –  12  year  olds.

No  adults  allowed!
