Space Encounters

Available ONLY in February!

Blast off on an adventure that will take your class to the stars! Space Encounters is our newest themed field trip and is perfect for educators looking for a more structured experience for their students. Space Encounters is also a terrific value because each package includes:

  • A space-themed Works Theater show AND a Buhl Planetarium show, both geared to your students’ grade level
  • Ample time to explore our SpacePlace exhibit, with replicas of modules of the International Space Station, real artifacts used in space, and a weightlessness simulation experience.
  • A screening of the movie Hubble at the Rangos Omnimax Theater. This gripping story of the Hubble Space Telescope will immerse you in a journey through distant galaxies to see realms of space never known before.

All activities are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.
