Field Trips for School Groups
School field trip presentations consist of one or two planetarium programs. You may choose any two of our shorter programs (up to 25 minutes in length each) or one of our longer programs (length 26 to 41 minutes). Following the planetarium program(s) will be the current edition of our seasonal presentation called Stargazing. Stargazing presents the latest information about the locations of the current evening stars and constellations. The total show time will vary from 45 to 60 minutes depending on the selection. Time will be provided for questions from the students. Teachers receive up to 10 free passes to public shows to give to their students as incentives. The tickets will be presented to teachers when they arrive for their field trip presentation.
