This is a two-hour visit that consists of a mixture of presenter led and animated dome shows, and a workshop.

This can be tailored to preference and to cover many aspects of the curriculum. We offer sessions covering the Earth & Space and Physical World sections of the Junior Cycle syllabus. Each session lasts for 2 hours in total and will cover 3 modules, generally consisting of a Presenter-led Planetarium Show, a Full Dome Show in the Planetarium and a Workshop. You can mix and match the modules taught to suit your teaching needs. Though other combinations may be possible.
