Pupils will become virtual astronauts as they blast off into space to investigate our Solar System. Your pupils will learn all about the different planets in our Solar System and will work in groups to guess some of space’s greatest facts!
After becoming experts on the planets in our Solar System, pupils will be transported to see the Milky Way from outer space. Witness the fascination and awe on your pupils’ faces when they witness the wonders of space first hand!
It’s often quite difficult for pupils to understand how vast space is. This journey into space puts Earth into perspective by answering questions that are astronomical in size such as ‘How big is the sun in comparison to Earth?’ ‘How many stars are there in our galaxy?’ and ‘Are there any other galaxies like ours out there?’
‘Outer Space’ is a PrimeVR favourite and is a great workshop for any class learning about space.
