Immersive Theatres: Mobile Digital Dome Experiences
Using state-of-the-art projection technology, Immersive Theatres will fly your students to the edge of the Universe, plunge them into the deepest ocean or immerse them inside a living cell - all from the comfort of your school hall.
Delivered by experienced planetarium educators, we not only offer the world's largest catalogue of immersive 360-degree shows, but also various size domes (4m, 5m, 6m, 7m) to suit every budget and available indoor space. Our sessions are flexible (between 30-45min long) and we offer three simple booking options:
- Half Day: unlimited shows delivered before or after lunch
- Split Day: unlimited shows straddling lunch finishing approx. 14:00
- Full Day: unlimited shows throughout the school day
Domes are fully accessible and meet rigorous health and safety standards. Find out more about prices, dome capacities and space requirements on our website, where you can also see our Public Liability Insurance certificate, Child Protection Policy, Risk Assessment, Method Statement, etc.
In 2016 we became the first mobile planetarium service to receive the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.
'A meaningful or "wow" experience (Ofsted, 2010) is an encounter that emotionally engages a child to want to understand and know more’ - Jonathan Barnes, 2011. We provide such meaningful 'wow' experiences.
