P5/6 Armagh Planetarium Trip
We recently went to Armagh Planetarium in conjunction with our topic on Earth and Space. We were treated to a show in the dome theatre, which allowed us to blast through space whilst visiting and learning about our neighbouring planets, before the thrill of a rollercoaster journey through space! Luckily no one fell off the roller coaster and we landed safely back on terra firma. We were told about the different satellites and the International Space Station that man has put into space. Other exciting workshops included creating a comet and making our very own rockets, which we were able to launch at the back of the Planetarium. Our visit was concluded with a visit to the Astro Park which included a scaled model of our solar system.
