The video collection project
Videotaping one or more of your lessons, either in the planetarium or during a lesson that supports planetarium visits, is a major project of the IPS Education Committee.
The committee is now requesting both brief digital video clips and longer digital video of lessons covering a variety of topics. These videos are not intended to be shown in a planetarium. Rather, they are being collected to show how others present different topics in astronomy to different age groups.
The video must cover a particular astronomy or astronomy-related topic. It may also cover a method of introducing students at any level to the planetarium. It may be short (5-10 minutes) or longer (up to half an hour). Another option is to submit a long video covering several parts of a planetarium program in a chained sequence. Students may or may not be present.
We will use this information in two ways:
1. To get started, please download the complete details from the links below, or read them online on the Video Project Instructions page.
2. To see videos that have already been completed, go to the Video Directory page.
