The Portable Universe programs are a great introduction to astronomy for learners of all ages and consist of a series of modules that work individually or together with other components to provide a range of astronomy-themed lessons that suit your needs.

All programs use our digital planetarium and require a quiet, indoor room with a minimum 25-by-25-foot area of clean, open floor space and a 14-foot- high ceiling. The planetarium is designed to accommodate most standard wheelchairs.

To arrange times, contact 206-768-7175 or outreach@museumofflight.org.

These are Outreach programs done at your location.
