CE-MIST Student Programs at the RPSEC
Journey into the Living Cell: The DuPont Planetarium takes students from the vastness of outer space to the intricacy of our inner space as students learn about cells. The program visits major cell organelles and explains their basic functions and structure. Before entering the planetarium, students form a “cell” in the gallery and become acquainted with the names and functions of the major organelles as they role-play how those organelles would act on raw material entering the cell.
