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 indoor planetarium. By projecting a representation of the night sky onto the dome’s interior, they 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.
Each session will be the same, but geared towards each grade level group. Limit of 30 children per class.
