About K-12 Planetarium Showings

Thank you for your interest in our community resource! At this time we are completely booked for both paid K-12 rentals and free K-12 spots due to limited Planetarium staff availability this academic year. We cannot make any exceptions as our presenter calendar is now completely full. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding, and hope we can get you scheduled in the next academic year.

During the academic school year, the SFCC planetarium offers free K-12 planetarium shows to local schools.

  • Free school presentations are only available on Mondays at 12:30 p.m., and Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. We are unable to schedule free K-12 shows outside of these days and times. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

  • Classroom teachers must schedule shows directly with the planetarium staff.

  • Designated home school presentations are scheduled once each quarter. Organizers should contact 509-533-4321 for details.

Reservations are done on a first-come first-serve basis. Please note that availability, show times and dates of all planetarium shows are always subject to change.

Please send an email to for reservations or to confirm show schedule and availability.

During the summer months, public school groups may rent the facility for $50 per planetarium show.
