Explorer Dome – inspiring, entertaining and educational hands on science shows! Interactive science adventures within the magical atmosphere of Explorer Dome’s portable planetarium. Crawl down the tunnel and into the darkened dome to explore the wonder of Space, experience a dazzling display of Light & Dark, enter the Amazon, float inside a human cell or immerse yourself in disgusting digestion from top to… bottom.
Explorer Dome is one of the UK’s leading science outreach organisations and has been touring schools, colleges and festivals since 1998. We provide lively, interactive, presenter-led shows tailored to all ages and with plenty of participation and hands-on demonstrations to truly engage the audience. Offering a variety of shows to complement and enhance the National Curriculum for primary and secondary schools, or adapt any of our topics for festivals, fairs, parties, youth groups and family events.
We specialise in pitching the content and style of our shows to specific audiences, whether they be infants, juniors, A-Level, adult or those with Special Educational Needs. We aim to make science exciting and inspiring and for all ages and all abilities. Let our experienced team of professional presenters bring science alive for your audience.
Explorer Dome accommodates between 25 – 40 people per show and we can present up to 7 shows per day. You will need a smooth, clean, indoor floor area of at least 6x7m, a clear ceiling height of 3.5m and access to mains power. Explorer Dome visits outdoor events where a marquee is available.
No space for the Dome? Larger groups? We also have a range of chemistry shows which do not use the Dome and involve freezing fog, fire, flashes and BANGS!
