We hope that you will consider sponsoring a student, group of students or a class to come to the Planetarium this year.

With the state budget cutbacks, our local schools are reducing the number of field trips they take each year. This year, some area schools currently lack any funds to provide this amazing experience. Without your sponsorship, K-8 students from Title I (economically disadvantaged) schools will not be able to attend planetarium astronomy field trips to supplement their schools science curriculum and be inspired by this remarkable place.

Your sponsorship can make a significant difference in the life of a K-8 student by exposing him or her to the world of astronomy and space science. Please help bring students back to the Planetarium, and inspire the next generation to aim for the stars.
