Thomas P. Gehringer Planetarium

Burke High School,12200 Burke Boulevard,
Omaha, NE 68154


The Thomas P. Gehringer Planetarium is a unique feature of Omaha's Burke High School. We are one of the few fortunate high schools in the nation to have such a facility.

The planetarium is used as a teaching tool in our astronomy classes, for providing special programs for other science classes and enrichment opportunities for many non-science classes.

Show titles include: More Than Meets the Eye, Cosmic Chemistry, Bear Tales and Other Grizzly Stories, Tales of the Zodiac, Endless Horizons, and Cosmic Catastrophes and others.
