Life has the largest Planetarium in the North, which we use to deliver a range of differentiated educational shows.
Science Centre visits usually include a visit to the planetarium to see one of our full dome shows, but if you'd like to explore a particular subject in more detail you can book a live, presenter-led planetarium show for your class. Add a space and astronomy-themed workshop in one of our labs to create a bespoke Space Day for your class.
