Bobby Corley
Co-Founder and Science Educator

Bobby Corley has a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Arts and Sciences from Texas State University.  His passion has been in Astronomy since he was 9 years old. He got his first telescope at the age of 10. He has expert knowledge of the solar system and of all 88 northern and southern constellations.

 

Bobby  volunteered at the Charles Hayden Planetarium in Boston and at the Ecotarium's Planetarium in Worcester, MA. While at the Worcester Ecotarium, Bobby created two planetarium shows: "Constellations of the Zodiac" and "The Nine Planets." He knew that the best way to help patrons to enjoy a planetarium show was to teach them something about Astronomy!

 

Bobby joined the Austin Planetarium as a volunteer in 2011 and continued at the TX Museum of Science & Technology as an intern before becoming an employee in 2016.  For his internship, he developed his third planetarium show: "Pluto: The Solar System's New Horizon." If you wish to see information about Pluto, you can visit his website at www.pluto9thplanet.com. He also works for the Lower Colorado River Authority presenting Star Programs.
