Planetarium: An Astronaut’s Adventure

EYFS, Y1, Y2
30 minutes - show
Space, Draw conclusions

Available to book April to July.  Available for visits to the Science Oxford Centre November to March. Our ”Planetarium – An Astronaut’s Adventure” show is designed for up to 35 children.

Immersed in our inflatable dome, children will have a 360-degree view of the night sky above them. They will then embark on an adventure like no other, travelling into orbit, landing on the Moon, and boldly going where no humans have gone before. In this mesmerising introduction to the ever-expanding subject of Space, children will be able to explore – and ask – the biggest questions in the known Universe. This science-focused live show will be delivered by Science Oxford staff. Children will be asked questions to encourage discussion around key topics to encourage higher-order thinking.

The experience lasts no more than half an hour inside the dome and can accommodate up to 35 children. Schools will need a hall large enough to hold the planetarium (3.2m high, with a 6m x 6m footprint). Please discuss with the Science Oxford team.
