Sessions are Australian curriculum-based for years P-10 and further tailored to suit your learning objectives. Presenters provide demonstrations inside the dome through manipulating stunning imagery and multimedia. Presenters will guide students through the session encouraging interaction through relevant questions appropriate for their level of understanding.
Current Australian curriculum-based presentations for years P-10 cover topics about the changes in the sky, weather, Earth’s rotation causing day & night, shadows, the lunar cycle, solar & lunar eclipses, reason for seasons, tides, our place in space, solar system, space technologies, planetary orbits, sizes & distances in space, lifecycle of stars, space exploration, living in extreme environments, Earth’s history and structure, changing Earth’s surface, changing climate, the Big Bang, origins of life, natural selection, and black holes…
Our Standard Prep program focuses on daily and seasonal changes in our environment including the weather. What is weather? What types of weather are there? Our presenter highlights different types of weather whilst introducing students to the sky above including the sun, planets and moon. Suggested full dome show is ‘Zula Patrol-Under the Weather’, ‘Secret of the Cardboard Rocket’ or ‘Tilt’.
Our Standard Year 1 program is based on the Australian curriculum demonstrating observable changes in the sky. Students experience a simulation of sunrise, sunset, day and night to see stars, planets, the Moon and constellations. Students are taken on a virtual trip into space to see the planets close up with the full dome show ‘Secret of The Cardboard Rocket’ or alternatively, discover how the seasons work with Annie, Max and their robot Kelvin in ‘TILT’.
Our Standard Year 2 program highlights the ‘push and pull’ forces in action. Students take a virtual trip through the solar system taking off and landing on different planets. Our suggested full dome show is ‘Secret of the Cardboard Rocket’.
Our Standard Year 3 program is based on the Australian curriculum covering the Earth’s rotation on its axis causing day and night including sunrise, sunset, the appearance of the Moon and measuring shadows using a sundial. Initially, the presenter demonstrates these key concepts using visually engaging surround imagery. The full dome show re-iterates the concepts in a fun and exciting way. ‘Earth, Moon & Sun’, ‘Tilt’ and ‘Secret of The Cardboard Rocket’ are recommended full dome shows for year 3.
Our Standard Year 4 program demonstrates how Earth’s surface changes over time as a result of natural processes and human activity. A popular full dome show ‘Earth’s Wild Ride’ reveals Earth’s history from asteroid impacts, dinosaurs, volcanoes, and raging rivers eroding the landscape. The story is told by an astronaut to his grandchildren whilst observing the Earth from the Moon.
Our Standard Year 5 program is based on the Australian curriculum with a focus on Earth’s place in space, our solar system, planet orbits, composition, relative sizes & distances, space exploration and technology. Initially, the presenter demonstrates these key concepts using visually engaging surround imagery and the full-dome show re-iterates these concepts in a fun and exciting way. Suggested full-dome shows as part of the presentations are: ‘Oasis in Space’ for an in-depth analysis of the plants, ‘To Space and Back’ for technological advancements due to space exploration, ‘Capcom Go’ for overcoming the challenges of sending humans to the Moon.
Our Standard Year 10 focuses on features of the universe including sizes & distances in space, types of galaxies, the lifecycle of stars, planets of our solar system, and how the ‘Big Bang’ can explain the origins of the universe. Suggested full dome shows include ‘Black Holes – The Other Side of Infinity’ revealing the lifecycle of a star as it becomes supernova and then a black hole. Alternative shows are available including ‘Origins of Life’, ‘Cosmology’ and ‘Natural Selection’ for the theory of evolution.
Each session is tailored to suit your requirements. Our standard presentations for each year level are Australian curriculum-based and adapted to suit your preferred topics and students’ level of understanding. Multiple year levels are welcome during the same visit with each year level having their own presentation.
