Classes - Jenks Planetarium

Explore the night sky with our engaging, awe-inspiring shows! The Jenks Public School District is excited to bring you the Jenks Planetarium! Housed on the 3rd floor in the new Dr. Kirby A. Lehman Center for the Study of Math and Science Center on the Jenks High School 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, audiences 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 50 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.
