A Comparison of Dome and Computer Planetaria in the Teaching of Astronomy.
Baxter, John H.; Preece, Peter F. W.
Research in Science and Technological Education, v18 n1 p63-69 May 2000
Investigates 5th and 6th grade students' learning when taught with the aid of dome and computer planetaria. Finds both planetaria equally effective with female pupils. Recommends the use of planetaria, which might enable females to catch up with males in areas that place heavy demands on spatial ability such as astronomy. (Contains 16 references.) (Author/YDS)
