"Twinkle twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are"
Kids simply love to go to movie theatres. But what they don't know is that the nature also plays movies every night for each one of us to explore, learn, discover and enjoy that too on the biggest theatre of all, the night sky. Each night the sky is filled with interesting but imaginary characters made by our forefathers by joining bright stars. They are called constellations. With little imagination you will notice that the sky is filled with fascinating ancient characters like Orion, the hunters; Leo, the lion; Krittika, the seven starry sisters and a whole lot more. The night sky is a place where battles are being fought, heroines are being rescued, monsters are being hunted down and a whole lot more. As the night advances new constellations present themselves one by one for our viewing from the eastern horizon. Then there are other thrilling and action packed moments like meteor showers, visits of comets with long sleepy tails and games of shadows like eclipses. Nature has provided the best viewing seat to each one of us. Irrespective of where we are on the earth, we are always at the centre of this huge dome shaped sky theatre called the night sky.
Planetarium EducationTM - K12 is a holistic and scalable concept that connects the students with the night sky. It is based on the pedagogical efficacy of a full dome digital planetarium system as a Polar and not a Cartesian teaching aid for astronomy. It provides a solution to the inherent impediments associated with astronomy teaching and star gazing. It is companion to STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). It has been designed to implement astronomy in the Indian school system K-12 through ready-made, scale-able, class appropriate, and progressive full dome (no part of the sky missing) planetarium shows developed in Indian ethos and related sky simulation scenarios produced by Leo Planetaria and various third party shows. The companion books and tests designed especially for the shows are available for print/ download from internet through forum membership. The shows can be linked to on the campus astronomy hands on activities and astronomy Olympiad. In house Planetarium EducationTM means that astronomy can be made an integral part of the school curriculum covering whatever little is prescribed by the school/ board on astronomy subject and of course a whole lot more that is there in the cosmos to explore, learn, discover and enjoy.
