OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

Let us take you on a journey through our solar system. From the sun at the centre of the solar system to Pluto in the Kuiper Belt. We’ll learn a bit about each planet along the way and even visit some moons that you may not have seen before. This is a great general space show with lots of “wow” moments!

STARS

What are stars? How are they born? Find out the answers to these questions and more in our Stars show. We’ll look at the constellations and listen to some stories around them and fly through a nebula to look at newly forming stars. We’ll also look at our own star, the sun,  and learn how important it is to our planet, and all the other planets in our solar system. This show is particularly suited to younger children

ICE WORLDS

The delicate balance between ice, water and the existence of life has been a topic of scientific inquiry for generations. In travels to the Arctic and Antarctic regions of our planet, we'll examine the ecosystems that exist and thrive there and learn how their survival is connected with our own. Beyond Earth, we'll see how the existence of ice shapes the landscape and the natural systems on other planets and moons in our Solar System.
