K-12 School Visits

Glendale Community College invites you to apply to bring your class (K-12) to see a full dome planetarium show through our Science Center Outreach Program. This unique opportunity exposes your students to a fantastic science lesson while giving them first hand experience on a college campus.

The planetarium show is flexible and geared specifically to those classes that are learning about the solar system and space, primarily grade five classes. The presentations are age appropriate and can include an emphasis on the planets, solar system, constellations or other topic related to astronomy, as requested by you, the teacher.

Planetarium shows are presented by Glendale Community College instructors/presenters with outstanding education and knowledge in astronomy and other physical science disciplines.

The planetarium seats 48 individuals and the shows typically last 45 - 60 minutes. If the group is larger than 48, we can schedule two consecutive shows and plan an additional classroom activity for the students.

There is no charge for these shows and activities as the GCC Foundation generously funds the Science Center Outreach Program.

To arrange a planetarium visit for your class, please access the Science Center Outreach pages.
