Poster Title: Paper Plate Education
Poster Abstract: Ever since Regiomontanus made a lunar volvelle in 1476, astronomy enthusiasts have used moveable paper instruments for celestial understanding. Paper Plate Education (http://analyzer.depaul.edu/paperplate) continues that tradition with its collection of hands-on activities that are made from simple paper plates. Sample materials contributed by planetarians include an all-sky projector for portable planetariums, a satellite tracking bowl, a tactile Platisphere for visually impaired stargazers, a calibrated altitude measurer, and other moveable paper devicesall for pennies apiece. Poster will be displayed Tuesday through Thursday morning. Paper Plate EducationServing the Universe on a Paper Plate.
