Educator Resources

The Orange Coast College Planetarium is committed to providing an innovative, immersive, and illuminating experience for Orange County and beyond. 
Starting in Spring 2019, the Planetarium will offer field trip experiences for the local school community from kindergarten through high school. We will offer a number of exciting full-dome programs that by no means are restricted to astronomy. In addition, the planetarium can be a starting point for a campus-wide experience that can include the visits to the Dennis Kelly Public Aquarium, Horticulture Gardens, Art Pavillion, and other exciting places.

Planetarium content will be directly correlated with the California Next Generation Science Standards, so educators will have supplementary and follow-up activities and lesson plans to integrate their visit seamlessly into their curriculum.
