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.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify that heliocentric means sun centred
  • Describe our solar system as a heliocentric system with planets of different sizes and compositions orbiting at different distances from the Sun
  • Recall that scientists can use light which we can’t see to observe objects in the universe
  • Appreciate the relative size and location of the Earth within the universe
