Educational programming is available for all grade levels from pre-kindergarten through high school. Our educational experiences typically combine topic specific commercially available productions with live narration from our operators. Such a combination allows time for our staff to interact with student patrons, while utilizing the full capabilities of our star theater to produce a realistic night sky as well as virtual journeys to celestial phenomena.

Please note that although our school programs are designed to be both academic-level and content specific, individual presentations vary slightly with the age, maturity and experience of each student group.

For further information and details concerning typical grade-level appropriate topics, content and program length, please call our staff at (518) 564-3168 anytime Monday–Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
