Consider booking both “StarGazer” and “Hotter Than Blue” for a complete discussion of stars, the universe and the processes at work in the universe. In the time between the two shows, students and planetarium staff will work in small groups with hands-on activities geared and designed to develop the students’ knowledge of the night sky and skills for finding their way around the sky. In addition to seasonal constellations, locating the objects mentioned in the two shows will be the subject of the small group sessions. “StarGazer” or “Hotter Than Blue” and “Explorers of the Mauna Kea” would also make a good Two-Fer special. “Welcome to the Universe” and another standard-length show would also be a good combination.
Cost per student is more than the single show cost, but less than double the single show cost. Allow at least three hours. Contact the planetarium director to arrange a Two-Fer special.
Please note: we prefer a minimum advance notice of six weeks to schedule a Two-Fer special program. Due to staff and facility availability, we may not be able to accommodate requests made with less than six weeks’ notice.
