Secondary School Tours

AstroTours for secondary school students venture beyond the planets of the Solar System and focus primarily on stars, galaxies and cosmology. Your AstroTour guide may begin by investigating the life and death of stars through the 3D movies: Our Sun and After Stars, or may show Spinning in Space leading into a discussion of galaxies and large scale structure in the Universe. We have many animations and simulations that can be used with high school audiences and teachers are invited to customise the AstroTour to suit the interests of their students. Each student will have access to a pair of special 3D glasses, adding a whole other dimension to their learning experience!
