About Wonderdome Mobile Planetarium
Wonderdome Mobile Planetarium can be set up in just about any large indoor space and cater for many years groups in one day. This means nobody needs to travel anywhere to enjoy the experience. Thus, booking our services makes a very cost effective activity! We provide risk assessment and even will suggest a timetable for the day.
All you have to do is to come along to your Hall and enjoy the experience. It is an incredible way to learn about the wonders of space due to the unique environment the dome creates.
Sessions content ranges from stargazing to solar system and space exploration. Show length can be from 20 minutes up to 1 hour, depending on the arrangements on the day. Through the use of the completely dark planetarium and amazing 360-degree visual display, this is a learning experience the children will enjoy and remember. All sessions are led by presenters who are passionate about space and will happily pause the show to answer questions from the learners.
