Planetaria and Science Museums Adapting Creatively During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Planetaria and science museums like many other businesses and non-profits have suffered substantially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many have been closed for almost 9 months now, and may not open until summer 2021. Those and others that have re-opened, but with restrictions, have been grappling with how to survive and how to adapt to a new context of online public engagement. This session will explore what a couple leaders in the field have been doing creatively at their institutions and in collaborations with other informal science facilities and organizations.
