Stellarium

Stellarium is an open source planetarium software. Similar to google earth it is downloadable on multiple platforms and is easy to use for younger students. This software can be projected and displayed so classes can use the software as a whole or it can be used individually on ones own laptop. If this is being used in a upper level class then students would be able to code and add to this program themselves leaving it a better open source forum then when they started.
