Wayne SchlingmanAbstract: “Astronomers have an outsize passion for outreach” was the title of a news article published in Nature in November of 2018. The vast majority of professional astronomers and students engage with the public about their chosen field of study. Depending on our interests, fields of study, and access to technology this takes on many different forms. I will be talking about the outreach programs I am involved as a participant or director. I will also discuss the role planetariums play in fulfilling this mission and the unique role we play in school and public programming and how interdisciplinary partnerships breakdown historical assumptions about the planetarium experience.
