Opening Times

Alpha Dome is a mobile planetarium that provides an exciting and imaginative way of presenting key concepts in science to school children. Whether it be discovering how fossils help us learn about the past or how the Earth, Sun and Moon interact – our shows will help children learn concepts from the current curriculum. You may be aware of the current advances in space tourism, with Alpha Dome’s 360 degree shows Children can visit other planets without leaving the classroom! Of course this is exciting for the Children, but more importantly teaches them about science and sparks their interest in the field of science and technology. Our lead presenter, Paul, has been a lifelong astronomy enthusiast, undertaking cosmology and astronomy OU courses as well being a member of the British Astronomical Association. Having met inspirational people from the world of science, such as the late Sir Patrick Moore and Professor Stephen Hawking, he aims to inspire the next generation to learn about science.
