About Planetarium Club

Planetarium Club is a free organization for UWM students that meets every other Thursday at 4 p.m. during the school year. Here students and planetarium staff can experiment with club equipment such as our VIVE virtual reality headset, starball projector, and see some past shows and stargazing. There will also be some great volunteer opportunities running planetarium club activities such as our annual Stars & S’mores event! Members who volunteer 5+ hours/semester with the club (including meetings or special events) will be granted free admission to any paid Planetarium program.

Join Now!

Any current UWM Students can join now for free! Spring meetings will be held biweekly on Thursdays at 4:00-5:00 pm at the Planetarium-Physics room 139. Please direct any questions to  club officers Elise Murphy or Allison Beebe at planetarium@uwm.edu. Thank you!
