• Field Trips: Other Groups

    Other groups include private and public school groups, homeschoolers, community groups, or any group looking for a planetarium lesson during the school day (between 10:30 and 1:30 pm).

    Field trip programs are best described as live, multimedia LESSONS that are developed and taught by a certified science teacher. All lessons are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and created to be memorable experiences that cannot be replicated in the typical science classroom. See the LESSONS link for lessons offered by grade level with descriptions and standards.
