WELCOME to our Public Outreach Page! Our motto: ”The Larger the Island of Knowledge, the Greater the Shoreline of Wonder!” or “Studying a Big Universe at a Small College!”We specialize in teaching undergraduates, but offer a number of public programs during the year to school groups, community groups (girls scouts, boy scouts, etc) and general public.
Next Event – The VENUS TRANSIT of June 5, 2012!
Other events will be arranged with our planetarium, which is described below.
Millikan Planetarium - Home to the Best Skies in Claremont!
The Millikan Laboratory houses an excellent planetarium, featuring the latest technology for simulating the night sky. This facility is ideal for public shows, school groups, and introductory classes, and can accurately project the positions of over 2000 stars, and simulate the rising and setting of the sun, motions of the planets, and effects of latitude, and time on the celestial sphere. We have hosted numerous public and community groups in the planetarium, as well as teacher workshops from around the area. If you are interested in visiting our facilities, please contact either Dr. Penprase at firstname.lastname@example.org, or David Haley at David.Haley@pomona.edu
