Log Number: MA-249584-OMS-21
The Michigan Science Center will purchase a portable planetarium that will bring planetarium shows to more than 2,000 children through its Traveling Science Program. The museum plans to take the programs to 10 schools and 8 libraries in Metro Detroit and 6 libraries in northern Michigan. They will deliver the portable planetarium shows in coordination with the museum's long-standing "Scopes in the City" program, which allows people to use telescopes to see the night sky. The program also will expose students to Michigan's growing aerospace industry and help increase their interest in earth and space science.
