EDUCATION: PRESCHOOL EXPERIENCE
WELCOME TO STARDOME
We want to encourage curious minds as early as possible. A trip to Stardome for preschoolers is not just fun – it also introduces kids to the basics of what’s in the night sky, and encourages independent thinking and exploration.
Our education crew have created session modules based on subject matter. However, sessions are customisable to your learning objectives so don’t hesitate to ask if you want something different.
15 minutes in the Space room – an educator-led session focusing on your chosen topic and including a related interactive learning activity.
20 minutes having fun with rocket launching followed by time to explore the Space Gallery & Exhibits area.
30 minutes in the planetarium. Your group will see a 360-degree feature show of your choice.
