Another grant has been approved for the school year! Our Perham High School astronomy students will head over to Minnesota State University – Moorhead’s planetarium. Planetariums offer a unique tool in showing our night sky, which is a great way to help students better understand constellations.
Here is a bit from MSUM’s website about the planetarium:
The Minnesota State University Moorhead planetarium offers a variety of multimedia presentations that awe, amaze, entertain and educate viewers of all ages. Tour the planets and known universe through a night sky simulation that delivers spectacular imagery through a dynamic and total immersion experience. The planetarium uses the premier Elumenati projector and Uniview scientific software used by the most prestigious planetariums in the country. The planetarium comfortably seats 62, and serves 10,000 visitors annually.
