What we offer on a school trip
The new all-inclusive approach to school visits means every school trip will include each of the following activities:
- Discover Workshop: choose from six curriculum-linked themes
- Planetarium Show: a new presenter-led, live show featuring the stars and planets adapted to meet the needs of your group
- Space Challenge: a guided mission through Explorer:Space, a new interactive zone
- Explore the exhibits: students will have an allocated time to enjoy the much-loved hands-on exhibition floor.
The workshop, planetarium show and space challenge will be adapted to suit the age and ability of your group. All you need to do is decide which of the Discover Workshops you'd like to book:
Discover: Destination Space- Explore the Universe from the comfort of your home planet. Follow and work with robotic explorers as they face the challenges of space. Find out how space discoveries affects life on Earth.
