Mobile Digital Planetarium

In order to provide an opportunity for rural school students for astronomy education right at their door steps, Karnataka Science and Technology Promotion society (KSTePS) has initiated the Mobile Planetarium Program since 2017. Mobile Digital Planetariums are portable form of a fixed planetarium which are equipped to create an artificial night sky by using inflatable dome and state-of-the-art projection system.  It has an ability to present astronomy and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) shows to students through an entertainment concept. These shows are immersive in nature and create special experience to students.  Each show is of the duration of 25 to 30 minutes, where 30 to 40 students can see at once.

During FY 2019-’20, six mobile planetariums were procured using funds from Kalyana Karnataka Region Development Board (KKRDB) and the program was launched at Kalyana Karnataka Region in September, 2019 by Honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka.  A total of eleven mobile planetariums have visited 1,439 High Schools of various Districts of the State and conducted 10,983 planetarium shows benefitting about 3,83,043 students and teachers.
