Big Astronomy: (Nearly) Free Show and Great Resources. When we think of big astronomy, we think of big telescopes. But PEOPLE enable discoveries.” Big Astronomy is a National Science Foundation funded project to explore the Dome+ model – a planetarium show distributed for a minimal fee in both English and Spanish along with a website that hosts resources and live programs to extend learning beyond the dome. Research on the effectiveness of this method will be carried out by Michigan State University. Learn more about the project and the resources that will be available to your planetarium in this presentation. The presenters are: Renae Kerrigan, Planetarium Director at Peoria Riverfront Museum; Dr. Shannon Schmoll, Planetarium Director at Abrams Planetarium, Tiffany Stone Wolbrecht, Planetarium Lecturer at Ward Beecher Planetarium.
