The Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium hosts nearly 10,000 visitors a year. This year we will be updating the planetarium to a state-of-the-art science theater. We have already received funding for much of this renovation; however, we still need to secure funding for new seating and ongoing acquisition of videos and software for the new full-dome theater system.
Please consider making a contribution to our Seating with the Stars campaign. Supporters who buy one or more seats at $500 each will have their name engraved on a plaque and mounted on the benefactor's wall display in the planetarium lobby.
For additional information please contact Tricia Bunten, Interim Director of Development for the Swenson College of Science and Engineering.
