Varia Planetarium – Summer 2015

  • Exhibit Hall

Under Roof, Dome and Sky

urds

Under Roof, Dome and Sky is the product of a 5-year project undertaken in 1968 by MAPS planetarium directors. The 45 activities designed to be student-directed were designed and tested as supplemental to the classroom science education of the time in cooperation and with the input of teachers. Topics are covered with both elementary and secondary level activities. Educational methodology has changed in the intervening decades, but these exemplary lessons can be adapted to today’s STEM objectives. All MAPS members are welcome to download and put this collection to use in their own domes.
