Wonder & Awe
Our Year 1 / Year 2 class had just started a topic on space and this (visit) certainly brought in the 'wonder & awe' to their learning. There was time for the children's questions to be answered as well as giving them an introduction to stars, stories round the constellations, visiting planets and the International Space Station.

Thank you for coming to our school
I really enjoyed the planets when we looked at them right at that moment 

Planetarium presentation was excellent
The level of knowledge demonstrated by the presenters was amazing- no questions were too difficult for them and they explained everything in a 'child friendly way'. It has really inspired the children to find out more about the solar system. Thank you! 


Really enhancing to children's learning
This is the second time we have used the outreach educational programme and both times have really been enhancing to the children's learning. I have also been to the observatory with a class and found it the best organised visit I have taken children to. Excellent - thoroughly recommended!

"The ForceWorks (interactive exhibits) are absolutely fabulous - the children had a blast! We went through most classes and a few older ones would like to go again. They learnt a lot and there were plenty of questions raised.
