Facility:Fiske Planetarium and Science Center
Description:Play to learn at Fiske Planetarium on the beautiful main campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder! Serving more than 4,000 undergraduates and nearly 30,000 K-12 students as well as the general public, Fiske features a Zeiss Mark VI optic star projector under the largest planetarium dome between Chicago and Los Angeles. Fiske regularly hosts lectures by noted space scientists, live concerts, teacher workshops, and public programs including the live "Colorado Skies" series and Friday night laser shows. K-12 students are also offered a variety of hands-on science labs as well as scouting workshops for merit awards. Fiske outreach efforts bring the stars to communities throughout Colorado with telescopes, sunspotters, meteorites and a portable planetarium (StarLab). With funding from generous private donors, NOAA and NASA, Fiske Planetarium is transforming its lobby into Boulder's newest interactive science museum. New hands-on exhibits help patrons "see" the invisible while exploring the electromagnetic spectrum. "Science on a Sphere" (developed by NOAA) is a permanent installation that shows Earth and other planetary bodies from the viewpoint of orbiting spacecraft.
