For Educators

Join us and discover how art and science shape each other, our lives, and the world.

Journey through the cosmos in the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium, explore a mummy’s tomb, and encounter a 65-million-year-old Triceratops skull.

Our school group experiences can be transformative for your students because programs build on one another, bridge disciplines, and create connections between objects, ideas, and experiences. Participate in hands-on classes, immerse yourselves in extraordinary stories under the planetarium dome, and discover the world through the interpretation of art and museum objects in our galleries.

We offer a wide range of educational programs for students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12, including:


We look forward to another great year of learning experiences for you and your students, and we thank you for allowing us to be an extension of your classroom!
