Staffordshire is a beautiful landlocked county in the West Midlands, which incorporates part of the Peak District.
The Wonderdome Staffordshire Mobile Planetarium offers school shows in all of the county’s cities and towns. Over the past four years, our mobile domes have delivered exciting space-related, presenter-led shows to schools in Stoke-on-Trent, Lichfield, Stafford, Burton upon Trent, Cannock, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Leek, and Tamworth and many others.
WonderDome will add the wow factor to the FS, KS1, KS2 and KS3 science curriculum topics. We also offer shows to enhance maths and English learning as well as to add extra-curriculum fun without leaving the school.
Booking the Wonderdome Staffordshire Mobile Planetarium to come to your school or organisation requires only getting in touch with us to arrange the programme for the day. No other paperwork is required as we will provide you with all risk assessments. Our service is fully insured and all our presenters hold up to date clean DBS certificates.
