Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance and support


School Service 


We have been working hard, like schools, to plan the future and I would ask you to bear with us and would be grateful if you could support us fairly soon, this year.

  1. We will  work with schools to provide, write and deliver extra tailored school science programme without a planetarium enclosed area. For example, rocket and space activity workshops in schools. (if you feel the planetarium too restrictive for social distancing). This would be a fully presented and interactive smart board and experiment- based activity for all the pupils.  (Our science centre has many workshops tried and tested written)
  2. Through our science centre called ‘Science Zone UK’ based in Bournemouth, we can provide workshops with online class tutor (Q&A) on a whole range of topics. We would provide materials such as ‘Dry Ice’ and chemical vassals by delivery.
  3. Our planetarium is now currently online LIVE every Wednesday throughout May and June from 11am for ‘Home Education’ for your pupils and families.   This is a free service although we are asking for donations of £1 to support staff costs. This is on Facebook LIVE on FB site – ‘Science Zone UK’ (our science centre)
  4. Our planetarium could deliver online sessions to provide, write and deliver extra tailored science programmes. These are exciting and interactive—as classes can view and ask questions of the tutor about the planetarium as it run through the shows.  Live Interactive planetarium shows (LIPS) are the best and you can see examples of this on the LIVE shows on Facebook. Many of the previous broadcasts are saved on Facebook site (Science Zone UK on the video tab) lots of video to view, however our school offer is a unique tailored online session for you pupils when the pupils are back. This can be delivered on a smart board as a group or PC’s. You could also do this as a group on the Home Service at present for your current pupils at home or send them a link. We have different price tariffs for different options.   
  5.  Our giant planetarium domes come with fully circulation of air and we are going to fit extra air-conditioning to maintain replacement of air flow at a rapid rate and cool temperature. If visitors are allow back at some stage to schools, this would be a great option with a reduced class size – say 15 limit of pupils.
