Hannah performs planetarium shows at the Pacific Science Center, Seattle!

Today Hannah performed her portion of a live-narrated planetarium show, “Earth: Pole to Pole,” at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle for two all-ages audiences. The show was developed collaboratively as part of the Portal to the Public Science Communication Fellowship program, with science center staff, Fellows, and Dr. Harry Stern of the Applied Physics Laboratory. It is part of an NSF-funded project “Engaging Students and the Public in Polar Research through Live Interactive Planetarium Shows”. University of Washington researchers are analyzing survey data taken from audience members after each show to evaluate the effectiveness of the show’s educational goals. Catch Hannah again next week at 3pm on Saturday, November 16th, and stay tuned for possible future shows before she leaves Seattle!
