Planetarium Field Trip

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. The Wayne State College Planetarium with its audiovisual special effects explored topics such as the moon, constellations, planets, and galaxies. In the planetarium concepts were demonstrated in ways that are impossible in a classroom. This translates into enhanced learning for students.

Our field trip combined the planetarium visit with a tour of The Wayne State College Museum of Natural History. Thank you for sharing those critters, Dr. Loggins!

  1. I wasn't able to view your slide show, but my daughter sure enjoyed the trip! I remember going when I was a kid, and it was lots of fun.

  2. We had a great time! The kids were so well behaved and knowledgeable. Inside the planetarium their newly acquired "astronomy" vocabulary kept them fully engaged. If the opportunity comes again, please go. "Your student” is an excellent resource for skygazing.

  3. I completely forgot that the planetarium was in Wayne. Definately a place to go for a family outing!
