Stage 1 Astronomy: Changes in the Sky

Duration: 90 minutes

A wonderful experience for curious young minds where young learners will see, think and wonder about changes in the sky by:

  • Exploring the concept of night and day using our very own augmented reality board game and models
  • Safely observing the rapid movement of the Sun through our unique Solar projection telescope
  • Following the changing shape of the Moon for a whole month!

Every group will:

  • Look through a telescope (weather permitting) at the surface of the Sun during the day or the Moon, planets and stars at night
  • Experience pristine dark sky in the digital planetarium where clouds never ruin the view
  • Use our unique augmented reality app and game board to explore daily changes in the sky.

Every school receives:

  • Make your own sundial template
  • See, Think, Wonder thinking routine lenticular bookmark
  • The ‘Sky this Month’ star chart.

Before coming for a program please show your learners this short video on how to look through a telescope. It will make the experience more enjoyable and potentially save enough time to allow us to show extra objects.

Please note:

The 5:00 pm session is available May through to July.

The 6:30 pm session is available April through to September.
