Education School Trips

A trip to Stardome aims to support your class plan and show your students fundamental principles of astronomy and how amazing space is! We encourage curious minds and want young people to ask the BIG questions – what else is out there? How far can we go? How did it all begin?

During the trip to Stardome, depending on the year level, your students will enjoy a classroom session, time in the Space Gallery & Exhibits area, and a planetarium show in the 360-degree theatre. This immersive experience brings to life the concepts and ideas of astronomy and space exploration.

Stardome is proud to be a recognised LEOTC provider with an education programme driven by learning objectives and aligning with the New Zealand curriculum.
