School and Education Groups

School and Education Groups

We offer free planetarium shows for school or educational groups. 

Using an Education and Public Outreach grant from the WV Space Grant Consortium, we developed a series of inquiry-based learning modules that target the WV astronomy objectives for grades K-6.  Each module consists of an educational video, a planetarium demonstration, and a hands-on exercise.  Each module is 1 hour in length.

The materials for each module are posted under the links below.  Please browse the modules for a subject appropriate for your class.  Feel free to download and use any of the materials from the modules.

K-1
2-3
4-6

Our seating is limited to 40 people per show. 

Reservations required. 

Note: Please ensure that your kids are not wearing shoes that light up. The lights on these shoes are bright enough to wash out the sky in the planetarium.
