Lourdes University Appold Planetarium presents the Dome from Home Club. Members will experience a new show every week right from home! Nothing can really compare with the immersive experience of traveling through space in the Appold Planetarium, but watching a version formatted for your flat screen at home is the next best thing.
“The Dome from Home Club is a new STEM-education offering made available free to the public because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to continue to educate and encourage curiosity, despite the restrictions created by this pandemic.”-Laura Megeath, Coordinator of the Appold Planetarium.
