Planetarium, inside El Trompo, Interactive Museum Tijuana A.C

Our objective is to bring children and young people closer to science by adding astronomy to the general contents of the museum. Our plan is to install a planetarium with 50 seats in the interior of El Trompo Museo Interactivo Tijuana AC. With this educational tool of advanced technology, we will be able to disseminate and communicate science and strengthen educational programs.The dome becomes a tool for research, as well as a means of disseminating science and technology, and it is our goal to bring together 42 thousand children and young people annually to enjoy a content that reinforces what has been learned in class in order to facilitate the process teaching-learning in astronomy, 20% of these children, that is 8,400 children and young people come from the poorest and most vulnerable areas of the city.Desde: 2017-08-11 Hasta: 2018-05-19

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
