About the Planetarium
The planetarium has been in use as part of the GC astronomy labs since Fall semester 2008. It is also been a common part of campus outreach with visits from Kid's University, Boys and Girls club, PRELIMS, GNETS, and SEE programs. Local teacher preparation programs and summer workshops have also had the chance to experience the educational opportunities of this system.
The planetarium has been funded through the Department of Chemistry, Physics, and Astronomy, the GC Student Technology Fees Committee, and the generosity of the Grassman Foundation.
Department chair Dr. McGill and university president Dr. Leland
inaugurated the planetarium in Spring 2009.
