|Emerging Communities Committee|
to promote the development of planetariums and astronomy education resources in emerging communities in Africa, Asia and South America.
Astronomy has a universal appeal to people in cultures and countries around the world. However, there are few planetariums and other astronomy education resources in vast areas of Africa, Asia and South America. The goal of the committee is to assist in the development of planetariums and other astronomy education resources on these continents. Building on projects that have already been established in Ghana and Kenya, the initial focus of the committee will be Africa. Projects on all continents with emerging communities will be explored as resources permit.
In Kenya, Susan Murabana and Daniel Chu reach out to all ages across the country with The Travelling Telescope project.
