Garland ISD Planetarium

 

The Garland ISD Planetarium features a state-of-the-art, 360-degree domed screen with interactive simulations of distant galaxies, the Earth’s layers, the human skeleton and more.

The Planetarium serves as a resource for district teachers to take their lessons to the next level. All third-grade classes in GISD are being invited to take advantage of this exciting new opportunity before the school year ends. Next year, additional grade levels will be invited, and the district hopes to offer events for the community in the future as well.

“It truly is an educational experience like none other,” says Planetarium Supervisor Eric Pearce. “We have the ability to go anywhere on Earth or in the known universe, with stunning high-definition, 3-D clarity. We currently offer two shows a day with 77 seats each, and would like to offer this experience to every student in the district.”
