Planetarium Shows: High School Only

These shows are specifically designed for students in high school only. 

Natural Selection - Darwin's Mystery of Mysteries

45 minute duration
Join the young Charles Darwin on an adventurous voyage of exploration circumnavigating the World with the HMS Beagle. In Victorian times many physical phenomena were already discovered and described by natural laws, but life's most eloquent mechanism was still unknown: How could new species arise to replace those lost in extinction? It was time for someone to stand up and come forth with a Naturalist explanation of this mystery of mysteries. Witness the thrill of scientific discovery by seeing the World through Darwin's eyes, make observations of the most beautiful natural scenery and let the pieces of the scientific puzzle slowly but surely fall into place. Produced by Mirage, Netherlands.  

Live Planetarium Shows

As an option for group bookings, live planetarium shows may be adapted for a wide range of ages. Groups seeking an astronomy focus may have a live planetarium show adapted to their needs. Live planetarium shows may also be available for both public and group bookings on advertised night sessions.

 *Please note, the planetarium is not the only tool we provide for groups with an astronomy focus. Topics in the school syllabus such as "stellar evolution" may be covered using a large collection of stellar images and activities such as spectroscopy.*
