Café Scientifique Presented by The Bell Museum of Natural History

12/18/2012 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Join Bell Museum planetarium educators Sally Brummel and Sarah Komperud on a virtual journey to the edge of the known universe. We’re bringing our dynamic Uniview visualization software back to Bryant Lake Bowl for this one-of-a-kind interactive experience. From stars, planets, quasars, and nebulae, to the afterglow of the Big Bang - tonight, you are in the driver’s seat as Sally and Sarah customize a cosmic safari guided by real-time questions and interests from the audience.


Sally Brummel is the Planetarium Education and Outreach Coordinator at the Bell Museum of Natural History. She began her career as a planetarian at the Maryland Science Center in 2000, and has been guiding tours of the cosmos in the ExploraDome to over 100,000 Minnesotans since the spring of 2007.



Sarah Komperud has been working in observatories and planetariums since 2006.  Her passion for astronomy led her to studying at major observatories in both Australia and New Zealand.  If you had asked her what she was going to be when she grew up, she would have responded without hesitation “an astronaut.”  With backgrounds in physics, astronomy and science education she has been teaching science in fun and engaging ways to audiences of all ages for many years.  As the Bell Museum’s Planetarium Educator she flies students through the universe on a weekly basis, all without leaving the school gym.
