school field trips

The Walter R. Schuele Planetarium at Lake Erie Nature & Science Center offers students a unique environment in which they can actively explore space science topics.

Completely transformed in June 2014, the facility offers the Fleming Family Projection System consisting of a Spitz 512 star ball and an Omnistar digital projector. Together, these projectors provide us with everything from realistic views of the night sky to impactful 360 degree images of a trip through the solar system. Our 54 seat planetarium is available for your group seven days a week.

We also provide space science education programs in our mobile StarLab which can provide up to 30 students with a unique and interactive learning environment.

All of our programs for school groups have been developed with the Ohio Academic Content Standards in Science in mind. We provide hands-on activities and inquiry-based learning experiences as detailed below. To schedule your group, please call 440-871-2900 or email groupprograms@lensc.org. We look forward to engaging both you and your students in the wonderful and exciting world of Astronomy!
