Waubonsie Valley High School planetarium

2590 Ogden Avenue
Aurora, IL 60502


In 1975, the Waubonsie Valley High School Planetarium opened with the high school. While housed at Waubonsie Valley High School, the planetarium is the science and technology center for Indian Prairie School District 204.

The WVHS Planetarium serves students of Indian Prairie School District 204 by providing astronomy programs to students at their grade level. Every program is presented live in order to provide lessons directly linked to learning standards and classroom curriculum. In the 2008-2009 school year 20,000 people visited the WVHS Planetarium to learn about the night sky. This was the highest attendance in the planetarium's history.

The planetarium also opens its doors to the local community. Everyday the planetarium welcomes various groups including field trips, scouts, the public, and other organizations. Programs currently being offered include family nights and scout programs. Along with serving the local community, the WVHS Planetarium is affiliated with regional and national organizations.
