Outreach Feedback

Monday 17th October 2016 - 15:19 Really enhancing to children's learning
This is the second time we have used the outreach educational programme and both times have really been enhancing to the children's learning. I have also been to the observatory with a class and found it the best organised visit I have taken children to.

Monday 28th March 2016 - 13:41 Wonder & Awe
Our Year 1 / Year 2 class had just started a topic on space and this (visit) certainly brought in the 'wonder & awe' to their learning. There was time for the children's questions to be answered as well as giving them an introduction to stars, stories round the constellations, visiting planets and the International Space Station.

"The ForceWorks (interactive exhibits) are absolutely fabulous - the children had a blast! We went through most classes and a few older ones would like to go again. They learnt a lot and there were plenty of questions raised."

Sunday 15th April 2012 - 15:45 Mobile Planetarium Space Day
"Can I just say a huge thank you from all the Year 3 teachers and pupils. We all had a fantastic time in the inflatable planetarium, and both the children and staff learnt a great deal! It was wonderful to have such an interactive experience, totally tailored to the questions the children were asking...and in real time too. The children have been buzzing with enthusiasm (especially about the answers to their personal questions) and have been explaining incredible things to each other all afternoon."

Wednesday 8th February 2012 - 12:53 Planetarium presentation was excellent
The level of knowledge demonstrated by the presenters was amazing- no questions were too difficult for them and they explained everything in a 'child friendly way'. It has really inspired the children to find out more about the solar system. Thank you!

Sunday 29th January 2012 - 17:48 See you next time
"Thanks for such a brilliant day (in the mobile planetarium.)The children really enjoyed themselves. They didn't believe me when I told them that we were going to space in the morning. They were amazed! (which has resulted in some great writing!) Year 3 and 5 were also 'over the moon' (haha) Have a brilliant year. See you next time."
