Space - The Solar System and Beyond, is a curriculum based travelling school show that is presented using Stereoscopic Projection to create an immersive 3D experience that brings the "Wow" factor into the classroom and promotes understanding of complex and abstract concepts, motivates research and self learning, and has been voted the best thing they did all year by the children that have taken part....
Our journey starts with the earth in space: why we experience day and night, the different seasons and view the moon in various phases. From there we travel deeper into our solar system, examine the planets, investigate their relative sizes, temperatures and practice memorising their names. Next we cover some key space missions including the Apollo moon landing, we join the exploration rovers on the surface of Mars and the Cassini mission to Saturn. On the last leg of our expedition we see the stars of the Milky Way as never before, as we fly through the constellations discovering millions of stars, other solar systems and end with an appreciation of the vastness of our galaxy.
Space - The Solar System and Beyond, is a 40-45 minute program and usually four shows can be provided in a school day. The number of children per show will be determined by the size of room, which must have good blackout. Most AV rooms will accommodate a minimum of 20 children plus our large 2.4m screen and stereoscopic 3D projection system. Large audiences of up to 60 can be possible where room size permits. However, we recommend that around 30 to 40 pupils, is really best.
After school sessions and special events can also be provided, ask for details.
