Planetarium

Come Visit Our Planetarium at Kennedy Academy

Explore the world above our horizon!

The planetarium is located inside of Kennedy Academy (K-5) in South Bend, Indiana. 

Our planetarium, funded by a government science initiative, was built in 1972. The facility has an impressive 30-foot diameter dome that serves as a unique space in which students can explore the night sky.

In 2018, Kennedy Academy's Planetarium was selected to participate in the Farmers Insurance Thank America's Teachers program and was awarded $100,000 to upgrade the facility and technologies housed within our school.

The facility includes:

  • seating for 60
  • a Spitz A-4 starball at the center which is a precisely constructed optical/mechanical system that projects an accurate picture of the night sky as viewed from anywhere on earth.
  • a Warped Media fulldome planetarium system
  • a RADIANT Pro60 laser projector
