GPS Teachers

Welcome

The Glastonbury Planetarium welcomes all Glastonbury students, teachers and parents. Our shows will immerse your students in stunning visualizations that highlight the latest applications of science in the world today. The best part is that the planetarium is available free of charge to all Glastonbury classes.  The FullDome shows we license cater to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). When clicking on each show you will see an educators guide
(if available) and/or a list of standards that the show hits.  

Most of these FullDome shows run about 30 minutes in length.  We couple these shows with a 30 - 45 minute star talk related to the topics in the show. We can also offer customizable talks & programs. 

Should you want us to focus on certain concepts or topical areas, please contact us at 860.633 - 4455 (4923) or email us at Planetarium@Glastonburyus.org to discuss such options.
