We all thought the planetarium was great. It really ticked the boxes for all classes for the Planet Earth in Space strand of the Geography curriculum - an area that teachers find difficult enough. The children loved the projections and gained a good understanding of the movement of the earth, day and night and the seasons as well as the solar system and constellations generally. I particularly liked how you wove the ancient astrological / astronomical beliefs into the presentation.
