COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to social distancing measures and Government guidance to limit the number of visitors into schools from the start of the September Term, we've decided not to bring our travelling planetarium into schools until after the October half term holiday. We're now taking provisional bookings for 2nd November 2020 onwards.

PLANETARIUM SHOWS (available from 2nd November 2020)

With our out-of-this-world pop-up planetarium, we can take you on a trip through the Solar System, to far-flung places in the Milky Way, and beyond. We offer complete flexibility with all shows, adapting the show length and content to suit the needs of each and every school. Our 5-metre dome is fully accessible for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We've developed a range of shows for all ages and abilities that tie-in neatly with curriculum topics. These include:

Sensory Astronomy Show (EYFS, SEN)
Early Years Space Workshop (EYFS, SEN)
Interactive Sky Tour (KS1 upwards, SEN)
Solar System Experience (KS1 upwards, SEN)
Cosmic Chemistry Show (Upper KS2 upwards)
The GCSE Roadshow (KS3 upwards)
Fulldome Films (everyone!)

Prices start from £275 for a half day.

**** VIRTUAL PLANETARIUM SHOWS: Instead of bringing our dome to you, we're now offering the following 'virtual shows': *****

Early Years Space Workshop (EYFS, SEN)
Interactive Sky Tour (KS1 upwards, SEN)
Solar System Experience (KS1 upwards, SEN)
Cosmic Chemistry Show (Upper KS2 upwards)
The GCSE Roadshow (KS3 upwards)

You'll get the same live, presenter-led planetarium show beamed straight into your classroom via Zoom. After a short introduction, the presenter will share their screen, using digital planetarium software (the same software that we use in the dome). Shows can last from 15 minutes to an hour including live Q&As, and for longer sessions we can include a short astro film or simulation.

Prices start from £75 per show.

"Once again, thank you so much for your wonderful visit to us. The children were absolutely thrilled and we shared your visit on our Facebook page, with many parents commenting on how their children were talking about it lots in the evening or days after! So good for raising the profile of Science!"
