We Can Bring It!

Immerse your students in the universe with Polaris our digital portable planetarium. With Polaris you will be able to stand on the Moon and look back at Earth, experience a Martian sunrise, and even see what the Milky Way galaxy looks like.

Do your students have challenging questions about space science and astronomy? We have the answers! Our staff  are ready to connect with your students and share their passion and knowledge through video Skype. Your virtual field trip will include a short demonstration related to one of the themes below and a Q & A session with our staff.

Our Night Sky
The night sky is full of observable patterns and cycles. Constellations change with the seasons; planets become visible and even the length of the night changes. We will introduce local patterns that occur in the sky; the appearance of the moon and stars at night, seasonal constellations, the Sun, and how they affect living things.

Take a bold step into the future with our range of field trips and education programs. Your students will experience the wonders of space like never before!
