“Centennial of the Planetarium” is an international anniversary that celebrates German inventiveness and the triumph of the planetarium around the world. Today, more than 3,000 planetariums on all continents communicate astronomy, natural sciences, art and culture. They do so using audio-visual technologies that have always been at the forefront of their time. Today, planetariums offer an immersive experience that captivates viewers, enabling them to communicate even the most complex content in a low-threshold way.
“Centennial of the Planetarium” is organized under the auspices of GDP (Gesellschaft Deutschsprachiger Planetarien e.V.) and IPS (International Planetarium Society). This anniversary focuses on the out-of-school teaching of astronomy and natural sciences. Through 360° projections based on scientific facts, live concerts and laser shows, we will get the stars out of the sky! Events will take place worldwide to inspire children, young people and adults with this anniversary. We were able to win the Carl-Zeiss-Foundation as a major benefactor for the organization of the anniversary year; it would be great if we could also convince you to support this great event. Any amount is welcome.
We have already focused on the following projects:
