Giant Dome Theater and Planetarium Improvements

We've been hard at work all summer renovating the T. C. Hooper Planetarium for you. We can't wait to welcome you back in early 2017 with new shows, an upgraded projection system, full immersion dome, and more seats! We are 66% towards our planetarium campaign goal, can you help us get to 100%? Any level of support is much appreciated, and investments over $100 will be fully matched by an anonymous donor.



Local Legends Improv Fundraiser for RMSC at Coffee Underground

On October 7th, join us at Alchemy Comedy to see quality improv inspired by stories from Kelly Byers, our new Community Engagement Specialist. Half of ticket sales for this Local Legends show will be donated to Roper Mountain Science Center! We look forward to laughing and connecting with you off of the mountain.
