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.
Our Fossils and Dinosaur show consists of an introduction to dinosaurs, followed by a 25 minute film about where we have found fossils and what we have learned from them. There are also sample fossils for Children to examine at the end of the show.
Whilst we have a number of set shows on our website there is a certain amount of tailoring that can be done to suit your school’s needs. We always consult with schools before a show to plan our presentation around what is being leant in the classroom.
Why are Alpha Dome a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?
The Dome is visually engaging and novel for children but more importantly a great way to learn. Often teachers will devise a lesson to follow on from one of our shows to reinforce and build on what the children have learnt
We have developed our shows with content to help explain concepts from the current KS1, KS2 or KS3 curriculum covering ideas from how fossils help us learn about the age of dinosaurs to
What size groups do you cater for?
We have 2 domes, a 5 meter and 6 meter. The 5 meter will accommodate up to 30 year 1 children, and the 6 meter up to 30 year 6.
