Blending the worlds of education and fun, the Planetarium’s experiences are suitable for ages 4+. Topics covered by our experienced astronomers are guided by the SACSA Framework Strand called Earth and Space for the Standard of each year. This includes understanding the basic motions of the Sun, Earth and Moon, their effect on everyday life, components of the Solar System, and understanding the universe and the nature of space exploration.

Testimonials

"Can you pass on a huge thank you to Martin for his outstanding presentation last week. I've had lots of positive feedback from kids and parents about the show. They particularly loved his quite teaching manner as opposed to lecturers who just dazzle us with facts. How lucky are we to have such a wonderful resource and talented person."
