Community Outreach

Clark Planetarium Community Programs

Our mission is to inspire wonder, curiosity, and learning about space and science through our Clark Planetarium outreach programs. Our educators bring fun and engaging experiences to schools, libraries, expos, festivals, and other venues.

Lego Mindstorms Outreach Page Logo

LEGO® Mindstorms® is a STEM program presented by Clark Planetarium with hands-on activities that explore our world through simulations of robotic missions.

These free fun-filled activities are in partnership with Salt Lake County and City Libraries. Kids will build robots, collect and analyze data, and solve problems as a group.

This program is made possible through grant funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
