Planets in a room (PIAR) is a DIY kit to build a small, lowcost spherical planet simulator and planetarium projector (http://www.planetsinaroom.net/).
The project has been developed by the italian non-profit association Speak Science, with the collaboration of the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF) and the Roma Tre University, Dipartimento di Matematica e Fisica. It was funded by the Europlanet Outreach Funding Scheme in 2017 and selected by the Europlanet Society to be used as a tool for education and public outreach by the Europlanet Regional Hubs all around Europe. Today, it is being distributed online to be built and used by schools, science museum and research institutions. In this workshop we will present this tool, how to build and calibrate it and a selection of educational material and projects that have been developed for PIAR.
