Enter Techniquest’s digital Planetarium and take a journey through the Universe — discovering stars, planets and distant galaxies!
Each Planetarium show comprises a 20-minute video, that supports the teaching of the Curriculum for Wales, followed by a live tour of the night sky.
Pupils learn to identify stars, planets and constellations that can be seen from Earth, then venture beyond the Milky Way, towards the great wonders of the Universe. Presenters can zoom into stars and planets, pan out to detailed craters of distant moons, and display stunning phenomena such as spiralling galaxies, in order to consolidate and contextualise pupils’ learning appropriately and fuel a passion for cosmology and astronomy.
Each show is tailored to the age, ability and level of knowledge of the pupils. Techniquest’s presenter will ask questions in order to encourage engagement, thought and suggestions, allowing pupils’ decisions to influence the direction of the star tour.
Planetarium shows are available most days throughout the school year.
