Fisk-Vanderbilt Roadshow Planetarium

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Roadshow Planetarium is headed back
to the Brentwood Library

Saturday, April 11

 In close partnership with Vanderbilt University’s historic Dyer Observatory, the Physics & Astronomy departments of both Fisk University and Vanderbilt University are proud to offer a public outreach initiative comprising a large inflatable planetarium. By projecting a representation of the night sky onto the dome’s interior, we are able to teach students about the constellations and various mythologies, the nature of stars, the Sun-Earth-Moon system, the Solar System planets and their motions, and many other celestial phenomena in a fun yet informative manner.
There are 4 showings. Registration is required. 
Limit of 30 students per class.
