The Western Alliance Conference (WAC) is a gathering of planetarium professionals from multiple regions across the western half of the United States of America. The WAC is an excellent opportunity for fellow planetarians to share information about their experiences, and to explore new and impressive educational and visualization technologies offered for our unique industry.
The planetarium industry is evolving with the changes in display technology and other tools, as well as a wider range of science disciplines now accessible and appropriate for our audiences and venues. WAC will focus on STEM Education at all levels and include programs in the UNO Mallory Kountze Planetarium, Martin Luther King Jr. Planetarium at Martin Luther King Middle School and the University of Nebraska State Museum Muller Planetarium.
Scholars from any discipline are invited to submit a proposal focusing on STEM education at any level. As this is an interdisciplinary collaboration, scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to submit. After submission you will be contacted about your paper or poster's status. We are going to try and use the themes to assist and build the schedule. If you selected "Paper but willing to do Poster" we will let you know which format will fit in the schedule.
