Digitarium® Planetarium System
The Digitarium® Planetarium System is a wonderful way to bring your students to space without ever leaving your school! The San Joaquin County has a portable digital planetarium for members of the SPACE Consortium. To become a member of the consortium there is a one time $125 fee per school which includes the training of three teachers in San Joaquin County. Consortium members can then check out the star lab for a weekly fee of $125.

Fall 2018 Trainings:
Typically trainings are held at the beginning of the school year every September. All schools must have at least one trained teacher in order to reserve the Planetarium System. Only teachers trained through SJCOE can operate the system. If you want to have parent volunteers run the system, they must attend the training here at SJCOE.
