Portable Planetarium

Project Dates: 2009-2011
Project Lead: Angela Larson
Client: University of Alaska Fairbanks

Funded by NASA, the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute (GI) and University of Alaska Museum of the North (UAMN) developed the Portable Planetarium Project to provide a traveling “NASA Day” to rural Alaskan communities. Goldstream Group developed a rubric to assess the science, culture, and academic content of the Portable Planetarium presentations; developed an online pre/post test for students to complete before and after seeing the Portable Planetarium presentation; and developed a satisfaction survey for participants who attended community science night activities. Goldstream Group analyzed all data and provided annual written reports.
