Planetarium: Exploring the Atom

Thinktank

  • Capacity: 30 pupils
  • Duration: 45 minutes
  • Type: Planetarium Show
Book Session

Our bespoke animations allow learners to investigate the structure and contents of the atom in a unique way. The show takes place in our 360 degree planetarium.

See the experiments of Rutherford which show us the structure of the atom and discover how our understanding has grown since then. Fly through the atom to the nucleus and find out what’s inside. Then take a virtual tour of CERN as we learn what current research is trying to do.

Please note: This session is only available as part of a 'Build your Own Discovery Day' package, for more information check out Visiting Thinktank page.

Costs: £375 for full day or £240 for half day.

(Available Monday - Friday).
