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:
