Planetarium Shows

Stories in the Stars 
Constellations are more than just connect-the-dot shapes - they reveal stories told over centuries that connect us to the cultures that created them. While many familiar stories come from Greek and Roman mythology, almost every culture told stories. In this live show, our educators will weave you through time and place and through stories in the stars.

Hands-On Workshop

Constellation Storytelling 
Create your own myth and constellation story. In this interactive workshop, students will learn how to apply their knowledge

Cosmic Courtyard Exhibit Space

Visit our space-themed, hands-one exhibit space. Students can enjoy a range of activities like morphing themselves into an alien, touching a Moon rock, trying to lift a meteorite, and building a Mars rover. 

Curriculum Connections:

Programs are framed around key inquiry questions and provide opportunities for students to apply curricular competencies while developing a more in-depth understanding of key content areas. We are committed to a respectful and holistic approach to Indigenous knowledge by acknowledging the First Peoples’ Principles of Learning.
