Cosmic Tours: BE WISE at UCSD
Cosmic Tours is an integrated education and outreach program to bring the Universe to you! The UCSD OIR lab maintains and facilitates the use of the portable planetarium for public shows for K-12 schools and other outreach events, as well as undergraduate curricula. A planetarium serves as a fantastic facility for interactive scientific visualization. Portable planetaria make use of an inflatable dome that includes an advanced projector. Our team currently offers a traditional astronomical experience of the night sky and offer pre-arranged visualization programs and full dome movies that are developed for children and adults.
BE WiSE engages young female or female identifying + students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning experiences in collaboration with the region's research, industry and academic institutions.
