Sheffield Mobile Planetarium

Sheffield Mobile Planetarium

Wonderdome Sheffield Mobile Planetarium is based in Sheffield. We offer incredible space-related science shows to all schools in Sheffield and the surrounding areas. Our shows are praised by teachers and allow school children to learn about our solar system (and beyond) in an immersive, unforgettable way!

We provide a range of shows that are designed specifically for the following groups:

Reception, Special Educational Needs, KS1, KS2, KS3, Scouting organisations, Adults

Each of the shows includes a wonderful 360-degree visual display which is delivered by one of our expert presenters who is more than happy to answer questions and offer further insight and explanation.

The length of the shows can be adapted to meet your school’s needs depending on the number of classes you would like to visit, typically ranging between 20 and 40 minutes.

We can provide either half or full days depending on the number of classes you have. If you are using the hall for dinner we can deflate the dome and then inflate it again once the Hall is vacated.

We also cater for Scout, Beaver, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows groups and can provide a wonderful experience in getting astronomer activity, space activity or stargazer badges 

We have also helped a number of Scouts organisations to get their badges. Our mobile planetarium visited the 72nd Scouts and beavers groups at St Andrew’s Church in Nether Edge, visited Beavers and Brownies in Dore.

Along with Wonderdome Mobile Planetarium Sheffield benefits from other science and space show providers. For example, both the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University as a part of their outreach engagement provided STEM-related programmes and science workshops.
