Gene Roddenberry Planetarium

5411 Wren
El Paso, TX 79924

In 2001, the EPISD renamed the planetarium after famous El Pasoan, Gene Roddenberry. Born in the Sun City in 1921, Gene Roddenberry was a radio man on bombers in World War II and became a famous Hollywood screen writer. He is most famous for his work in creating Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry's vision of a future where people of all origins, races, and creeds can work and live together in peace and understanding fits well with our school district's philosophy of achieving "Nothing Less Than Success" for all our students. It is just a part of how we prepare  them to lead us all into the 'Final Frontier'.
