Planetarium Club

Due to the present COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, the Planetarium Club will NOT be hosting our standard club meetings for the rest of the semester, and all upcoming club events are cancelled. Thank you for understanding.

About the Planetarium Club

The Planetarium Club is a free organization for any current UWM students.

Meetings are held monthly on the third Thursday from 4:00-5:00 pm in the Planetarium/Physics 139. Meetings are open to all students throughout the school year- no commitment.

Here students and Planetarium staff experiment with club equipment such as our VIVE virtual reality headset, starball projector, and see some past shows and stargazing. There will also be volunteer opportunities to help run club activities such as our annual Stars & S’mores event and other evening Planetarium programs! Members who volunteer 5+ hours/semester with the club (including meetings or special events) will be granted free admission to any paid Planetarium program.

To join, email or attend one of the club meetings.
