Before you book please read the following information:

  • The Mobile Planetarium needs an indoor area of 8m x 8m with a 4m height clearance, access to power and a flat level surface route to get to it. It takes one hour to set up and 45 minutes to pack away. If you're using a school hall for clubs or lunches, there won't always be enough time to pack down before setting up tables. It's best if clubs and lunches are held somewhere else.
  • The maximum audience size is 40 KS1-2 children or 30 KS3 children and 2 adults. Capacity is limited by risk assessment so we can evacuate it quickly using the dome-flip method.
  • Accommodating chairs and wheelchairs may reduce capacity. Please ask us to help you with this.
  • The Mobile Planetarium is available for hires that are up to a one hour drive time from the Science Centre, please get in touch to discuss your location if you are unsure.

Children loved it. I can talk about it in a classroom but what are they more likely to remember? Definitely the dome!
