U-46 Planetarium Program 2021-22
Each lesson at the U-46 Planetarium consists of some history of the building and content coverage through a PowerPoint presentation or a full dome video. These full dome video titles are listed in the program outline below in italics. Of course, a tour of the current nightime sky is always presented. Lessons in the planetarium are 50-60 minutes long and are usually scheduled back to back during the day.
The content is currently aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and integrates the Common Core State Standards. The U-46 Planetarium is and has always been a great place to spark interest in space science, gain knowledge in all areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and learn under a dome that realistically mimics the sky and the movements that we can observe from here on Earth.
