Soton Astrodome: Explore the Astrophysics of the Universe

FREE Planetarium shows for local schools.
Since our establishment in June 2011 the Soton Astrodome #OurGreatestTeam have done shows at over 350 local schools free of charge.

Our astronomy outreach and public engagement program has engaged with over 70,000 people since it's establishment!

Check our availability for this academic year by clicking HERE !

Our aim is inspire children and adults (of all ages) to be inspired by and/or study/take an interest in Physics and Astronomy.

Each academic term we offer schools in the local area (within an hours drive of the University) the chance to receive a mobile planetarium visit for FREE !

We must reach at least 90 students in one visit, from a minimum of 3 x 45 minute shows. Ideally we would like to see at least 150 students in one day!

Our absolute limit for a day is 6 x 60 minute shows!

Even for Primary schools we insist on 45 minute shows- because the primary students have so many questions post show :)

Please note we do not do shows for Reception and Year 1 classes.
