A Universe for Everyone

Noreen Grice, an award-winning author and astronomy educator, will be our special guest to begin the meeting. She will explore how planetariums can be more inclusive and accessible for visitors of different learning styles and abilities in a multi-sensory talk entitled, “A Universe for Everyone: Planetarium Accessibility Considerations.” Grice received the Klumpke-Roberts award for outstanding contributions to the public understanding and appreciation of astronomy. She holds Masters' degrees in astronomy and business administration, has worked in and with the planetarium field for over 35 years, and is currently President-Elect of the Middle Atlantic Planetarium Society.
