Planetarium Contest!

Planetarium Contest!

The STEM Center is having an essay contest and you could win a free planetarium program in our new StarLab! You can find details on our contest page but start thinking now about your answer to our question Should Pluto be reconsidered as a planet?

Ever since 2006 when the international community decided to put Pluto in a newly-formed category of “dwarf planet” people have been pretty bent out of shape! It’s understandable: it was the only major planet discovered in the twentieth century and the only one discovered by an American, plus it’s Mickey’s dog! People are attached to Pluto but the science indicated it needed a change in designation… Only now some scientists are making the opposite argument!
