You are here Our Science & Maths Work The Mobile Planetarium

The Mobile Planetarium from the SkyDome Academy visited our school for two days. The mobile planetarium gave pupils and teachers a chance to interact with the planets, stars, galaxies and other objects in our universe. Derek Baugh (BSc & MSc Astrophysics) explored the planets of the Solar System and the moons of those planets, told about our galaxy, the Milky Way, in all its glory, viewed the night sky as it appears from Ireland or any part of the world and saw the constellations with perfect clarity. Derek brilliantly explained the astronomy concepts quickly in a visual manner and made sense of the sky that you see every night. Pupils are now able to locate stars and planets in the night sky. All the pupils in the school got the chance to visit the planetarium.
