Our homeschool group took a group of about 15 kids between the ages of 4 and 15 to the Planetarium in the Spring of 2009. The show we saw in the planetarium was a little young for our highschoolers, but they did enjoy it anyway. The best parts by far were the Science Live! classes. With such a small group, each student that wished to was able to go to the front and participate in at least one experiment as well as ask any questions they could think up. The "lecturer" was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining and the kids seemed to remember much of the information presented even weeks after the trip. It's definately a must see!

We went to the Planetarium as part of a group of 40 students, ages ranging from K to high school. We were divided into two groups and 1/2 went to the Science Live! classroom first and the other 1/2 went to the planetarium show first, then we switched.

The Science Live classroom was a great hands on opportunity for the students, where they performed experiments and guessed what the results would be. It was very interactive and educational. The teachers were very friendly and easy to talk to.

The planetarium show was very fun and educational, although the older students felt that it was geared for a younger audience.

Overall, a great time was had by all and it was a great field trip for us to participate in! My younger child, who is 10, wants to go back again.

We visited with a group to see the Magic Treehouse show in the planetarium. If you have a Magic Treehouse lover in your house, you just *have* to see this show. It was written especially for this planetarium and isn't shown anywhere else but here. My kids love it so much, we've seen it several times.
