Planetarium Title I Field Trips

This campaign ended on December 02, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Foothill-De Anza Foundation by clicking here!

The Fujitsu Planetarium at De Anza College has served the Silicon Valley
community for more than 45 years. Each year, more than 2,700 college
Astronomy students and over 23,000 K-12 students make the Planetarium their
home for astronomical inspiration. The Infinium-S star machine and digital
full-dome production systems render the night sky and astronomical phenomena
in brilliant detail, creating an immersive sensory learning experience that targets
all learning styles under one dome.

As stewards of the Planetarium, it is our wish and our hope to be able to provide this gift of learning to all schools and all students regardless
of financial status. We have created a fund specifically designed to
cover the field trip costs for students of Title I schools as well as to assist in
transportation costs to and from the Planetarium.

  • $5 covers the cost of a single Title I K-12 student’s field trip experience.
  • $650 covers the cost of every seat in the theater for a single Title I field trip.
  • $1500 allows us to help cover the cost of transportation for a 130-student Title I field trip and to provide a comprehensive learning experience for all students.

This Giving Tuesday, help us to illuminate the night sky for students in our Title 1
schools so that we can inspire those students to reach for the stars.
