Students experience interactive space travel

Wednesday, January 23, 2013


Krista Testin, a space science outreach teacher from The Journey Museum in Rapid City, brought the museum’s traveling planetarium to the Laura Ingalls WilderElementary School Armory Jan 17-18.


Pre-school through high-school science students experienced interactive space travel through Testin’s presentation.


Testin brings the dome-shaped inflatable planetarium to South Dakota schools to teach students about Earth and our place in the solar system.

Students lie on the floor inside the dome and watch a video that gives the feeling of travelling through space.


The museum’s Journey into Space presentation is funded through an education grant from NASA.
