WonderDome provides an inspiring learning experience, which captivates all ages. An inflatable planetarium is brought to your location, where the knowledgeable presenter will set up in the Hall and provide amazing planetarium shows. A timetable is agreed and each group will be transported into the world of space and science.
A WonderDome planetarium school visits are popular as they are easy to organise and provide an unforgettable ‘wow’ for learners. The perfect out of classroom experience which can kickstart a topic or consolidate learning. Our planetarium shows cover all ages, so everyone benefits from a WonderDome visit.
A WonderDome mobile planetarium is like a large domed tent, without a base. It is blown up with a large fan and everyone enters through the simple zip entrance. When it’s inflated the equipment inside projects 360 degrees to reveal the wonders of the Universe which your knowledgeable presenter will talk you through.
We cover all aspects of space. From the Solar System, how it all works together, the size of the planets and more, to space exploration including the Apollo Moon landings, the ISS and future missions. Content is curriculum-led covering the key ideas.
However, if there’s something specific you’d like your presenter to cover then please let us know when booking. We’ll always do our best to accommodate requests.
That’s up to you. And for how long you have access to a suitable venue too. We’d recommend between 25 to 40 minutes for EYFS and KS1 and no less than 30 minutes for KS2 and above. At least an hour would be ideal. However, we appreciate that access to a large room is a premium within the school day. We therefore work with you to make the most of the timetable to ensure everyone who’s accessing the WonderDome will have the best experience.
