Elkhart elementary students experience an inflatable planetarium


Libraries are known for bringing knowledge to life, but at Mary Beck Elementary teachers took that idea a little more literally than usual.

On Wednesday students at the Elkhart school got to gaze at the stars from the comfort of their school thanks to a mobile inflatable planetarium.

As students get closer to summer break, it's hard for teachers to keep their attention, so the school brought in the inflatable lab as a new and different way to keep their focus.

Teacher Shaun Hesselbart says looking at the stars is a good activity to take into summer break.  "It's just learning that becomes them then teaching their parents and then their parents can go out and interact with them as well," says Hesselbart.

All students at Mary Beck Elementary got a chance to try out the planetarium.  You can visit the Ethos website for more information about the inflatable planetarium.
