SCHOOLS & COLLEGES

SPACE ODYSSEY OFFERS EXCITING
 LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES IN 
BOTH SPACE SCIENCE AND BIOLOGY – 
WHERE THE ‘SCHOOL TRIP’ COMES TO YOU!

Crucially, each dome offers an incredibly effective learning environment in which young people can grasp otherwise abstract concepts in an exciting and memorable way, providing a great springboard for masses of cross-curricular work.

Every session is carefully differentiated to suit the age and ability of the group involved. With each one being led by a qualified and highly experienced teacher, Simon Ould, you can be assured that all shows are planned and delivered to maximise the students’ learning opportunities.

Amazing space science and astronomy presentations are offered for all ages, from Pre-School and Foundation Stage through to A-level – and beyond!

Fascinating biology-based shows covering Evolution & Inheritance are offered from Year 5/6 upwards and Cell biology/DNA for Year 9+

Space Odyssey offers superb value for money, with visits usually working out between £2 – £4 per pupil. The more classes involved, the cheaper it works out per head. Please see Booking / Prices page for further details.

Every Space Odyssey show is a unique, interactive, presenter-led experience, carefully differentiated to be suitable for the group involved.  Each includes  the clever use of spectacular 360-degree, 3D immersive imagery projected all around the dome, with Simon using an amazing range of ‘Fulldome’ video clips, animations and software to educate, enthuse – and inspire!

Where appropriate, shows can include fantastic ‘Fulldome’ films such as the ones shown below
