Planitarium logo


The Planetarium at King High School was rededicated as The Robert Wollman Planetarium in 2011.  From 1981 to 2010, Mr. Wollman was the director of the Planetarium and a dedicated employee of CCISD.

School and Community group Field Trip visits may be scheduled to the Planetarium in the mornings, during the school day.  Contact Laura Peck, the planetarium director, to make your reservation at (361) 994-6917 or by email at Laura.Peck@ccisd.us.

The Planetarium is open to the public on Tuesday evenings during the regular school year.  Public shows combine digital video technology, along with the original GOTO star projector of the night sky.  Show programs are posted below and will change every few weeks.  Be sure to check back for updates.

Like outer space, our Planetarium does get cold at times.  For evening shows, it might be a good idea to bring a jacket or sweater.
