Event Details

Calling all space explorers and budding scientists! The spotlight is on extra-terrestrial exploration these school holidays at Stardome.

What is an ‘alien’? How do astronomers search for life on foreign worlds? What will we do once we find it?! Stardome are on a quest to answer these questions and want you to come and help them uncover the what, the where and the how of…ALIENS!

Have fun with interactive experiments, crafts and tech activities as you learn about our search for life on other planets. Then, if the weather is fine, head outside and launch water-powered rockets. Finish up in the planetarium theatre, where you’ll catch the immersive, 360-degree show We Are Aliens, and visit Mars, Europa and other distant exoplanets learning about what life needs to survive and thrive on these distant worlds!

Bookings essential.

Sessions are at: 10am, 12pm, 1pm and are 1.5 hours long.

Price

Child – $12.00

Organiser

StardomeStardome and its team have been sharing a love of space from its premises in Auckland’s One Tree Hill Domain since 1967. A place of exploration, research and sharing of knowledge Stardome has been regularly open for public viewing evenings and daytime visits for school trips ever since. If you went to school in Auckland or the surrounding area you probably remember your first trip to Stardome as a kid. In 1997, NZ’s first and still largest Planetarium theatre was constructed and opened on the site. 670 Manukau Rd, One Tree Hill Domain, Auckland, New Zealand
