Planetarium Presents Dome From Home Club

The Lourdes University Appold Planetarium presents the Dome From Home Club. Members will experience a new show every week right from home. Nothing can really compare with the immersive experience of traveling through space in the Appold Planetarium, but watching a version formatted for your flat screen at home is the next best thing.

“The Dome From Home Club is a new STEM education offering made available free to the public because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to continue to educate and encourage curiosity, despite the restrictions created by this pandemic,” explained Laura Megeath, coordinator of the Appold Planetarium.

The club is free. For more information or to sign up, visit www.lourdes.edu/outreach/appold-planetarium.

Toledo Mud Hens Host Virtual School Day

On Thursday, May 21, the Toledo Mud Hens will host a Virtual School Education Day, presented by OI and Great Clips, and supported by Local 245, CollegeAdvantage and WTOL 11.

Each season, the Mud Hens host multiple School Education Days with nearly 30,000 students and teachers attending from schools across the Toledo region and Michigan. This year, it isn’t possible, so the Mud Hens have teamed up with amazing organizations from around the area to help teach kids about baseball, math, music, art, reading, history, science and more while they are safe at home.

The Virtual School Education Day on May 21 is geared toward junior high and high school students.

The event will include a variety of engaging educational videos from:

Toledo Mud Hens.
Imagination Station.
Toledo Lucas County Public Library.
Sauder Village.
Toledo Opera.
Findlay Mazza Museum.
Metroparks Toledo.
National Museum of the Great Lakes.

The virtual event will also include games and promotions so everyone can get off their seats and on their feet to make some noise.

The Mud Hens will stream the May 21 Virtual School Education Day at 10:00 a.m. A link will be provided at www.mudhens.com, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
