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
- Working in teams they will test the accompanying adults on why they see the Sun move across the sky its effect
- Safely observing the rapid movement of the Sun through our unique Solar projection telescope
- Show why the Moon changes shape every Lunar 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.
The 5:00 pm session is available May through to July.
The 6:30 pm session is available April through to September.
