TAMIU Planetarium

 

At the TAMIU planetarium we realize that science has a critical role to play in the lives of the residents of Laredo and the South Texas Region. Future careers will be increasingly technologically oriented. All residents need to be informed and empowered in the fields of science and technology to individually and collectively embrace the opportunities available.

The vision of the Planetarium at TAMIU is that this region will, through science literacy and capability, achieve industrial and economic growth and high employment, and its residents will enjoy the consequent social benefits. The culture of science will become as integrated into peoples' lives as the culture of sport.
