Red River ALC Science Students Visit MSUM Planetarium

Students from David Teige’s Integrated Science class at Red River Area Learning Center visited Minnesota State University Moorhead’s Planetarium on Dec. 16. At the planetarium, the students explored the different galaxies in the universe, probed into star formation, and looked into the past by figuring out how long light takes to travel from distant stars.

Red River ALC students experienced the planetarium’s new projector. It gives a 3-D view of all the planets, shows the orbitals of moons around other planets, and can travel billions of light years to the outer reaches of the universe.

Students said it was unlike anything they had seen before, and they would enjoy going again. According to Tristen Martinez-Wolff, “It was really awesome. We should go again.”
