The newly renovated planetarium is the centerpiece of the school’s Astronomy Magnet program that will offer students a challenging curriculum exposing them to critical thinking, technology, STEM, research opportunities and Advanced Placement, while earning college credit through Florida International University.
The quarter-million-dollar, high-def. digital projector has the latest sound and lighting systems that will take students from the surface of Mars to the bottom of the ocean.
Additional plans for the planetarium include educational programs for elementary and middle school students, professional development for teachers and community outreach programs.
