Learners will dive deep into Earth and Space during this program, where they will use real astronomy tools to uncover changes in the sky. This hands-on workshop will see learners use a projection telescope to show that the Sun moves and use this to work out the length of the day with our help. They will explore the short-term changes in the sky, the appearance and movement of the stars, and phases of the Moon in our recently upgraded digital planetarium. An in-house augmented reality app is used to investigate cycles of day and night in spectacular detail. If weather permits, learners will even look through a professional telescope to see objects in the sky.
Please note: 5:00 pm session only available May through July, 6:30 pm session only available April through September.
