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 planet Earth and other space sciences. The presentations are age appropriate and dovetail with the grade level NGSS California standards.

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 through this program, you must book through the Science Center Outreach.
