Volunteer Opportunities

We need fundraising assistance
  • Grant writing
  • Organize a raffle. We already have most prizes.
  • Organizing a fundraising event. We will be having a fundraising meeting soon.
We are looking for people who would like to present a program at the planetarium on an astronomy related  topic.

Our greatest need is for people to do programming for elementary and middle school age children e.g. art project or hands on activities.

You don't have to be a professional in the field - just knowledgeable and passionate about a specific subject.

You can do an show for all ages, for children or for adults. Shows may be a lecture, with or without multi
media. Or you may develop some kind of hands on activity such as an art/crafts project or a science

If you are preparing to teach, this presentation or activity would can be a comforable place for you to
practice your teaching skills.

By getting involved, you can learn about astronomy and become more comfortable in making public

Think Outside the Box

We are also open to creative uses of the Planetarium e.g. yoga, meditation and live music under the stars.

Hands on art projects would also be great. We have some art supplies.

Organize a Star Party

Borrow some telescopes for us (or use your own) and arrange a star party.
