Get Involved

The Adler Planetarium offers a variety of programs and opportunities for educators interested in getting more involved with space science and STEM. An annual Educator Open House showcases Adler field trip programs, resources, and professional development opportunities.


Professional Development

Teacher Advisory Board

Teacher Advisory Board members get an insider look at new programs and exhibits, providing professional feedback to developers about how Adler experiences relate to schools, students, and teaching. 

After School Clubs 

The Adler supports a number of after school clubs in the Chicago area through the Space Explorers Clubs for middle schools and the Near Space Explorers Clubs for high schools. Participating teachers from Chicago Public Schools receive professional development and all the materials necessary to implement the clubs.
