The Planetarium Era
From 1958, shortly after Sputnik, until 1972 I was associated with the
Adler Planetarium and Astronomical Museum
I presented the regular public Sky Show presentations, developed a special graded
series of presentations coordinated with the Chicago Public School Science Curriculum,
presented special lectures, developed and presented courses in Methods of Teaching Astronomy and Space Concepts.

In 1962 the country was trying to increase the number of individuals with
Science and Math education. The Chicago Planetarium Society applied to NASA and
obtained a grant to fund a pilot project.
