Solar System Science for Grades 3-6

Solar System Science for Grades 3-6

Yes, Pluto is included! The Planetarium’s Digistar visualization system creates an inspiring, immersive experience that can’t be conveyed on a flat screen. We take a 21st-century approach, recognizing planets, moons, and exoplanets as equally important. We fly through our solar system, comparing and contrasting features and processes on different worlds. We compare the structure of our solar system to other solar systems that have been recently discovered.

**Seating capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit. Maximum capacity includes all students, teachers, aides, chaperones, parents, and siblings.
