Come and meet The World Museums’ friendly little star who will lead you on a journey through their spectacular solar system. Together your students will investigate how new stars are formed, discover fascinating facts about different types of stars and learn about the mysterious planets near to Earth.

This workshop will take place in their wonderful Planetarium, where your class will watch their interactive show, The Little Star That Could. This is a fun animated journey exploring our solar system, telling the story of a newly-formed star and learning about other types of stars.

Students will act out what they have learnt by handling their model planets to recreate our solar system. This provides an interactive experience demonstrating the order of the planets in our solar system, explaining why life is possible on earth and what causes night and day.

This workshop explains some of the basic scientific facts of our home planet and aims to inspire students’ imagination to further explore our universe.
