Department of Information Technology, Biotechnology and Science & Technology / Karnataka Science and Technology Promotion Society(KSTePS)
Planetariums are domed theaters that project the starry sky and countless spectacular objects we find in our universe, creating educational experiences that teach astronomy and other sciences. Thus planetarium is an effective tool for students to grasp various astronomical concepts and in creating keen interest and spark enjoyment in this interesting branch of sciences.
The very first planetarium of Karnataka, Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium was established over 25 year ago in Bangalore and has been highly successful in communicating the subject to the students and general public. However, access to such fixed planetariums is highly limited, especially for school children from rural and remote regions of the State. Hence it becomes necessary to take the mobile planetarium to rural schools to provide an opportunity for students to enjoy the beauty of the night sky right at their door step.
“Tare Zameen Par” has been launched on 20th December 2016 by chief minister of Karnataka Shri Siddaramaiah at Christ university.
