A Mobile Planetarium to Arouse Year 8 Curiosity

Since Year 8 are currently learning about the earth and space in their Science curriculum, Mr Bower, Head of Key Stage 3 Science, and his team, arranged the visit of Cel Obert to set up a mobile planetarium in the BSB Castelldefels gym. It was an amazing experience for the children who were revealed the wonders of outer space.

Afterwards, the children demonstrated how much they had learnt and gained from the activity by writing their own reviews:

“It was fascinating to learn more about our solar system and even further than that. We learnt new information about interesting things, such as the phases of the moon, how our seasons work and what a nebula is. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to other schools too when learning about the exciting topics of space”, Jeannie.

“In my opinion space is a very marvelous part of our life which has created life, and eventually us. At the end of the video we all took pictures with cool masks and we also got our questions answered about what we doubted about the video and generally from things in space. It was very pleasant, fun and very interesting!”, Desire.

“A great experience in the planetarium. All interesting information well explained while we were laid down. We came out of the planetarium with all mysteries resolved, with clear explanation. An entertaining clip in 3D. I recommend this planetarium to everyone!”, Olga

“We were introduced as an alien visiting our solar system. It showed all the planets but was mostly focused on Earth, its moon and the Sun. I really liked it”, Victor
