One of the nicest programs in the El Paso Independent School District is the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium. The planetarium is a one of a kind feature in El Paso and it has been thrilling kids for generations with star shows and educational field trips about the stars and space.

This summer, the Roddenberry Planetarium is looking for high school students to volunteer during summer public shows.

High school students from any El Paso area district can volunteer at the planetarium. The students can sign up for two shifts. The first shift begins at 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., and the second shift will be from 1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday - Thursday.

Students will be given different tasks during their shift from controlling the Digistar system during the show, ushering people in and out of the planetarium, distributing tickets, and taking tickets at the beginning of the show. There will also be "clean up" days in which the students will help take care of the exhibits at the planetarium.

Students are asked to email emaldon7@episd.org, to get an email with instructions on how to gain access to the sign-up sheet to sign themselves to work on the different dates and shifts available. The volunteer program will be taking place from June 10 - June 27, and July 15 -July 25.
