Glastonbury Planetarium

The new 97,000 s.f. Elementary Magnet school provides students with an opportunity to focus on science and astronomy studies. The main feature of this magnet school is the planetarium located adjacent to the main entrance of the school. The forty foot diameter, 10 degree tilted dome and SciDome HD projection system creates a truly immersive experience. The exterior fifty foot diameter dome is lit by 17 independently controlled color changed LED lights create an equally dynamic light show. The Planetarium is designed for both school and public use.

Additional features include two large aquarium size fish tanks, a terrarium and interactive electronic media which allow students and visitors to see the power usage of the building as well as the amount of electricity produced by the rooftop Photovoltaic panels. The main entry and gallery design provides students with display areas to exhibit their work.
