School and Group Programs

The Planetarium is a sky theater where it is possible to simulate the night sky at any place on Earth at any time of the year. Programs presented during the year explore topics such as constellations, planets, galaxies and black holes. Various audiovisual special effects enhance the presentations. In the planetarium concepts can be demonstrated in ways that are impossible in a classroom. This is especially true of three-dimensional concepts like seasons. For teachers this translates into enhanced learning for their students and a more efficient use of conventional classroom time.
