Exploring the solar system
Travel through time and space in our amazing digital planetarium. Pupils learn how scientists and astronomers explore the universe as we take a closer look at our solar system, then navigate through the stars to distant planets and galaxies to uncover the hidden mysteries of the universe. A truly out-of-this-world learning experience, originally created by At-Bristol.
