Although the modules we present are similar to those we run in the Island Planetarium, they are modified to suit presentation in your school. We have evaluation and other material for school visits and the longer period we are with you will improve the understanding and enjoyment of your pupils. Please choose from the following topics those you would like us to present, then together we can agree a format and timetable for the day:
Modules A, B, C, D are the standard for SPACEDAY©. Modules E will replace module D.
For SPACEDAY© to run smoothly and to your satisfaction, we need a teacher contact to agree all arrangements prior to our visit. This teacher must have the authority to make commitments of the hall, classrooms and support staff and be present and assist us on the day. The number of support staff needed will depend upon how many pupils are participating in the day but it will be a minimum of one person for each class. Between the main presentations, there are video sequences, quizzes, tests and interactive games and puzzles for the pupils, which are supervised by your staff.

We can also run shows for the parents in the evening lasting about 25 minutes, this will cost extra and depend on other bookings we may have. Ask us for more details.

The dome fits into a hall or gymnasium which is at least 7m by 7m across and 4m clear height. As a guide, if the hall is less than 11m by 7m it is necessary to have at least two other classrooms in which our astronomers can undertake work with models, video and use the tellurium.
Unloading - As some of our equipment is heavy we like to get our vechile as closes to the hall as
possible to help with unloading when we arrive.
Setting up - We need around 1 hour to unload and setup the Planetarium and other displays. We also need access to a socket in the Hall and a couple on the classroom, a projector in the classroom where possible would be useful.
Lunchtime - Where possible we would like to try and keep the hall empty for the whole day, but we are know that this is not always possible because of the lunch. Please let us know if we need to move the dome during this time, so we can factor it into the timetable as this takes about 10/15 minutes to take down the dome and another 10/15 minutes to setup again.
