Florida teacher reaches for the stars – Jason Mocherman, USA

“In 2009 our school was rebuilt. At the time, I was running a 50-seat planetarium that had been in the school since 1968. We were running daily planetarium field trips for thousands of elementary students. Due to the economic downturn of that time, the planetarium was cut from the building project. With the help of many, I was able to raise the money needed to rebuild this facility. We now have a state-of-the-art fulldome project facility that sees over 10 thousand students each year in scientific field trips from four counties.”
