The Planetarium regularly holds sky-shows to dispel the heavenly myths, propagate the basic concepts of astronomy and also train the amateurs to appreciate the grandeur of the night sky. The topics include evolution of earth, mysteries of cosmos, exploration of Mars and other planets. Interactive sessions are held following the sky-shows. A special live session has been designed and being regularly presented to higher classes to supplement their science syllabi.

The planetarium coordinates the activities of Amateur Astronomers Association which include telescope fabrication, astro-photography and organising evening sky-watch sessions.
