Now school term time has begun again

we are winding up into our regularly busy schedules of workshops, Challenger missions and virtual lessons (via video link), but if you’ve read any of the previous few blogs you’ll know that summer hasn’t exactly been quiet!


Last weekend was particularly busy as we hosted the annual conference for the British Association of Planetaria. Over two days we discussed the most effective and imaginative ways to use a planetarium, both for teaching and public enjoyment, and saw some amazing fulldome films - including a preview of our upcoming show on the search for alien life, look out for it soon!

Since the conference I’ve been mainly working on a Halloween themed planetarium experience for October half term. Our theme for this holiday is ‘Spooky Science’, so we’ll be giving you the chance to create your own slime, watch mysterious and strange science demos and join us in the ‘Planiscarium’. Once you enter our ‘Planiscarium’ you will face witches, demons and skulls from all over our night sky, but hopefully none will follow you out!
