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…
Some of our most POPULAR programs
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 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 ACARA V9 Year 2 presentation recognises the Earth as a planet in the solar system and identifies patterns in the changing position of the sun, moon, planets and stars in the sky. See the planets of the solar system, the moon and its phases, the sun as a star and how shadow lengths change due to position of the sun and Earth. What is a blue moon, blood moon and super moon?
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 ACARA V9 Year 4 presentation is about the discovery of the forces of gravity and motion of objects. The main feature is a full dome show called ‘Take Flight’. The show demonstrates the forces of flight including lift, weight, thrust and drag (see full dome show
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 ACARA V9 Year 5 presentation includes focuses on light. Initially the presenter demonstrates how a sundial works as a compass and a clock followed by a full dome show ‘Travelling with Light’ which examines the natural and artificial sources of light, its properties, uses, and importance in our lives.
Our Standard Year 6 program considers how geological and extreme weather conditions can affect Earth’s surface. See how measuring changes in ice is a key indicator of global temperature changes, changing sea levels and their long term affects. Suggested full dome show is ‘Ice Worlds’. Alternative shows available for technology and survival in space.
Our ACARA V9 Year 6 presentation demonstrates the movement of Earth and other planets relative to the sun and model how Earth’s tilt, rotation on its axis and revolution around the sun relate to cyclic observable phenomena, including variable day and night length. A variety of full dome shows are available
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.
