The First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania

(FCFP) granted $300,000 through its Williamsport Lycoming

Impact Fund, making possible the purchase of a Spitz digital

technology system for the Detwiler Planetarium.

An educational partnership centered on Lycoming County’s K-12

schools will bring the county’s students and teachers to the

planetarium. To underscore this cooperative effort, the College is

providing professional development resources for teachers, along

with visual and participatory programs that are uniquely suited to

the tech-savvy learning style of young students.

The planetarium will foster partnerships with local civic groups,

clubs and preschools to furnish educational enrichment

opportunities to the entire Williamsport community. “Collaborative

regional opportunities in education are of great interest to the

foundation. FCFP is proud to support Lycoming College through

a project that extends their resources into the community,” said

Jennifer D. Wilson, the foundation’s president and CEO.
