School Shows

Bellevue College’s Astronomy Department invites you and your students to experience the wonders of our solar system…under our planetarium’s skies.

Bellevue College’s Astronomy Department and SAMI invite you and your students to experience the wonders of our solar system…under our planetarium’s skies. In our planetarium we are able to recreate the clear night sky, which enables students to explore the stars and constellations. You may choose 1-2 full-dome videos (for descriptions see above under “Our Shows”) to accompany the live segment portion of your show.

  • Maximum number: Our planetarium seats 60. The total number of students, teachers, and chaperones may not exceed 60.
  • Times: All of our presentations are 45 minutes in length, and take place from 10:30am to 11:15am, Monday through Friday while school is in session. Presentations must begin at 10:30, so we suggest that each class arrive 10 minutes early.
  • Reservations: All shows are booked on a first-come first-served basis and must be made at least three weeks in advance. You may call 425-564-3055 for further information about booking a show.
  • Cost: The cost is $150 for the 45 minute presentation.

 Special Shows

Special Shows can be arranged for evenings and weekends, providing a showgiver is available. Topics can be any of the topics for the school shows, and other topics can be requested. Cost for a special show is $250. Additional shows given on the same night are $150 each. To request a special show call the BC science division at 425-564-2321. The secretaries will write down your requested times and topics, and you will be contacted later about the availability of a showgiver.
