Reach for the Stars


For sixteen years Douglas County School District students have been awed and inspired by experiences in the district’s portable planetarium. Sadly, the aging equipment has served its last class of students. In December of 2017 the equipment had to be permanently retired due to unrepairable electrical problems.

The Foundation for Douglas County Schools and Kaiser Permanente are hosting the Reach for the Stars reception to raise money to purchase a Digital StarLab®, a state-of-the-art immersive planetarium. The reception will include a sneak-peak into the Digital StarLab®, live music and an exciting program showcasing the cutting-edge STEM education initiatives in Douglas County Schools. The evening is sure to be filled with fun and celebration, but most importantly, a generous outpouring of support for the 68,000 students that walk our halls each day.
