“Upgrading to the Digistar 5 system with the Christie projectors was huge for us,” says Kate Storm, director of theaters, COSI. “This system does everything we ever wanted a planetarium to do or wished it could do.”

“The technology in the planetarium allows us to create and develop unique content,” says Storm. “We created a custom show meeting Ohio’s learning standards for fifth graders in Columbus city schools during specially designed field trips. The feedback was incredible. Teachers and administrators told us the students could visualize and explain the concepts when they returned to school.”
