experience with interactive 360 degree audio-visual

presentations.

The dome can accommodate up to 30 children plus

teachers/adults. The area must be indoors and have

sufficient headroom (4.2m) and floor space (7.5m x

7.5m). 240V ac mains power supply is required.

Each show is tailored to the ages and abilities of

your pupils. Shows last about 30-45 minutes

including time for questions and discussion.

Please call for details.

◆ ◆ StarDome Planetarium

leaving your school with StarDome. Pupils will get an

astronaut’s-eye-view of the Sun, the Moon and the

planets of the solar system and even take a trip into

outer space and through a few constellations.

◆ ◆ ColourDome

See how light can be changed, bent, reflected and
