The planetarium offers a variety of programs for all grades. Some are traditional sky shows, some are interactive, where students use keypads built into the arms of the chairs to respond to questions. Participatory shows engage students in activities related to the concepts presented.
Programs are scheduled on a first come, first served registration process. School groups viewing the same program may be combined when space allows and grade levels are similar. While we will do what we can to adjust schedules, late arrivals may forfeit their booked program(s).
Tickets are $3/per student or a $45 minimum fee, which ever is greater. Teachers and adult chaperones are admitted free.
