Students will experience the stars in this exciting planetarium show as they learn about telescopes, how they work and how important they have been in unraveling these mysteries. Then students will get hands-on in an astronaut challenge activity.

In this World Museum workshop students will learn how we can see events from millions of years ago today and how looking back in time helps us work out why the universe is the way it is and what the future of the universe may look like.

Students will also gain insight into how observatories use telescopes to explore deep space and expand our understanding of our own place in space.
