The British Association of Planetaria (BAP) is a group of planetarium professionals and individuals devoted to astronomy and science education. We meet each year at the BAP conference to learn about the latest developments in the field, to share knowledge/skills and to hold our AGM.
This year, owing to the challenges caused by the Covid19 pandemic, the conference will take a different format and will be held online - taking full advantage of the technology that has been proved to work and aid communications. The exact format will be announced when all the details are in place, but expect similar quality of talks and discussions as we've had in previous years.
As an organisation we aim to promote planetaria and improve communication between like-minded people who share interests in science and astronomy. If you’re an astronomy enthusiast, a planetarium professional or are thinking about setting up a planetarium then feel free to get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
