    Registration for the UNO Aim For the Stars begins this week!

    Omaha STEM Ecosystems would like to inform the Omaha community of an exciting opportunity for children in grades from 3rd to 10th grade (entering 4th grade and entering 10th grade). Registration for these camps opens up the first week of January for 1 week (Mon.-Fri.) camps that are offered through June 3rd to August 2nd (no camps during the week of July 1-5). The University of Nebraska at Omaha Physics Department welcomes you to Aim for the Stars Science and Math Camps! There is a 1:8 adult to camper ratio at Aim for the Stars. Our staff members are chosen based on their rapport with children, knowledge of the subject matter and love of learning. Your child will learn so much and enjoy every moment of Aim for the Stars Science and Math Camp. There are also a variety of camps you can register your child for during any of the camp weeks. These range anywhere from 3-D printing, Science Fiction, and Engineering focused camps!
    To learn more about this exciting venture, as well as, where to register go to: aimforthestars.unomaha.edu
    These camps vary in price so go to the Aim for the Stars page at the unomaha.edu website link posted above to find specific prices for the camp you decide to register for more details. These camps are each 1 week long (5 days only)
    Most camps are scheduled to begin each weekday at 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m with options of before and after care with an additional cost of 10-30 dollars for either or both.

    6601 University Dr N, Omaha, NE 68182, USA

    6601 University Dr N, Omaha, NE 68182, USA

    UNO invites you to a fun and engaging panoramic movie experience at the Mallory Kountze Planetarium located in the Durham Science Building at UNO. A movie will be played in the planetarium which will be projected around the dome for an interesting and unique movie experience. Afterward, there will be a follow-up star talk using a simulated star projection of the night sky. Admission for this event is 4$ per person sold at the door. Doors open 20 minutes prior to the event. Free parking is provided past 5 p.m. at UNO campus. This event takes place on Friday January 11th at 5:30 p.m. and lasts about 1 hour.

    Two Small Pieces of Glass: The Amazing Telescope full-dome show follows two students as they interact with a female astronomer at a local star party.
    Along the way, the students learn the history of the telescope from Galileo’s modifications to a child’s spyglass — using two small pieces of glass — to the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and the future of astronomy. Aiming to engage and appeal to audiences of all ages, the show explores the wonder and discovery made by astronomers throughout the last 400 years.

  • “Hot and Energetic Universe” UNO Planetarium Show

    “The Hot and Energetic Universe” presents the fascinating world of high energy astrophysics. High energy astrophysics plays a key role in understanding the universe, as these radiations reveal the processes in the hot and violent universe. High energy astrophysics probes hot gas in clusters of galaxies, which are the most massive objects in the universe. It also probes hot gas accreting around super-massive black holes in the centers of galaxies. Finally, high energy radiation provides important information about our own galaxy, neutron stars, supernova remnants and stars like our Sun which emit copious amounts of high-energy radiation. Come and learn about your hot and energetic universe!

  • Upcoming Educator Workshop: Backyard Wilderness
    9:00 am-3:00 pm
    January 12, 2019

    3701 S 10th St, Omaha, NE 68108, USA

    3701 S 10th St, Omaha, NE 68108, USA

    View our newest Lozier Giant Screen Theater® movie, Backyard Wildeness, showing through the spring.  During this interactive workshop, we will delve into lessons developed around the main themes of the movie: ecosystems and adaptations.  This workshop is open to all educators (formal and informal), but is geared towards those that work with students in grades 3-8.

    About the Movie
    Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home, Backyard Wilderness 3D displays unique wildlife imagery and behavior, all captured by cameras mounted inside dens, nests and moving along forest floors and pond bottoms. We follow Katie, a young girl, and her family, who are absorbed by an array of electronic devices. At first, oblivious to the natural world just outside their home. Katie gradually discovers the intricate secrets that nature has hidden so close to her front door and we experience the joy she finds in her interactions with this newly discovered world. Admission is 20$ and includes movie and lunch

    Star Trek: Orion Rendezvous takes you on a voyage into both known and unknown territories of space with the crew of the deep-space science vessel Antares. Orion Rendezvous begins after a mysterious wormhole of apparently alien and artificial origin has been appearing and disappearing near Neptune. The audience is a shipload of Starfleet cadets aboard the Antares, which is assigned to follow the wormhole’s subway-like path to numerous astonishing — and very real — places in our part of the galaxy.

    *Star Trek: Orion Rendezvous was a traveling Star Trek planetarium show, produced as part of the Star Trek: Federation Science exhibition by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in 1992. The production work was done in cooperation with Paramount Studios, with the approval of Gene Roddenberry, and original design concepts sanctioned by Mike Okuda.

    The audience takes the role of cadets assigned to the science vessel Antares, as an unstable wormhole near Neptune sends them to a number of real astronomical phenomena, including Betelgeuse, Castor (in Gemini) and the Crab and Orion nebulae.

    In July 1993, the show landed as the “Star Trek sky show”, at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City’s American Museum of Natural History, where it was combined with the Star Trek Smithsonian Exhibit, which had traveled over from its hugely successful National Air and Space Museum, Washington DC, venue. Both were closed on 6 March 1994

    “Black Holes”: Few mysteries in the universe have the power and awe of the black hole. Only now are we on the verge of understanding their true nature. Narrated by John de Lancie (known for his role as “Q” in Star Trek TV series) “Black Holes” takes you on a journey through one of the most mystifying, awe-inspiring phenomena in the universe: a Black Hole. Where do they come from? Where do they go? How do we find them? Is there one on Earth’s horizon? What are supermassive black holes? What is “spaghettification”?!
