In the last four years, our West Yorkshire Mobile Planetarium presenters have visited and delivered mobile space shows to hundreds of local West Yorkshire schools. The shows were about the solar system, space travel and exploration and stars and mythology. Some schools booked the visits to enhance their Maths and English and other cross-curriculum topics.
