The CSC Planetarium, located on the lower floor of the Math & Science Building, serves the college and western Nebraska with educational programs in astronomy. The planetarium is open by appointment August 1st - December 1st and February - May, and can service groups of 5-35 people. If your group is larger, we can provide multiple shows for your audience.
Public programs are generally offered during the CSC Academic year. Tickets must be purchased from the CSC Conferencing Office in advance of the show unless otherwise stated. All planetarium shows are presented by CSC students and/or faculty.
The CSC Planetarium offers astronomy programs for all grades and age groups from preschool through college level. Public, private and homeschooling groups are welcome. School programs are specially scheduled events and are limited by the availability of our personnel to present them. Shows are presented by CSC students, and are given at a level appropriate to the audience.
In Spring 2015, we plan to introduce a new astronomy program aimed to help scouts satisfy requirements for badges and pins by learning about the night sky. Scout programs will be special scheduled events coordinated by troop leaders and planetarium staff.
The CSC Department of Physical and Life Sciences reserves the right to determine the content and scope of these presentations. Fees and donations will be used to help fund planetarium renovation and to allow us to develop new programs.
