Portable Planetarium Party on PRB Patio

Portable Planetarium

One of our recent undergraduate alums, Caitlin O’Brien, working with two other undergraduates, was selected last year for the President’s Buckeye Accelerator Award.  Their project, called Solstice Outreach (formerly Starry Night) uses a portable planetarium to bring the excitement of science to underserved communities like kids in underresourced schools.  But next week, as a one-time thing, they will set up in the atrium (not really the patio, but I couldn’t resist the joke in the subject line) to show us what they’re doing. 

This is a great opportunity to bring kids or just anyone curious, plus to learn about opportunities to get involved in future events. 

6–8pm, Thursday 2 May, atrium of the Physics Research Building
