The Jenks School District is excited to bring you the Jenks Planetarium! Housed on the 3rd floor in the new Math and Science Building on Central Campus is a 50-foot, 120-seat SciDome high definition planetarium. With it you will see the sky as you've never seen it before. See planets up close. Fly to distant stars and galaxies. Even rediscover our very own earth in ways never thought possible. From a complex black hole to the simplicity of a constellation, any audience will walk away with a new understanding of our cosmos. Shows will range from the young to the older young-at-heart. All shows last approximately 45 minutes.

Private groups are welcomed. These groups can range from scout groups, birthday parties or business seminars. Contact Dan Zielinski at dan.zielinski@jenksps.org OR 918-299-4415, ext. 3307, for information and scheduling of groups and special events.
