A presentation on planets in and beyond our solar system.
At Aberystwyth University we are fortunate to have been involved in both current and past planet exploration missions.
The aim of this session is to share information about the other planets in our solar system and how we are now able to detect planets further afield.
To discuss or book this or any of our other workshops, please contact Tally Roberts
For this workshop we provide a delivery officer and a PowerPoint presentation.
A presentation screen or projector which we can use to display the presentation.
These sessions are 30-60 minutes long.
For primary and KS3 (ages 11-13) students, we provide a tour of our solar system.
Those at GCSE and A-Level will be more in-depth and will take them to planets beyond our solar system.
As with many of our offerings, this can be presented as a stand-alone session or as part of a series.
We offer a workshop on Detecting Exoplanets which acts as a great extension for older learners.
A presentation on the ExoMars mission is also available which then ties in with our Science of Colour workshop.
Currently, we are working on developing new astronomy experiences using our planetariums.
As with most of our workshops, we are happy to offer our support remotely through Teams or Zoom video conferencing software.
We have previously hosted a short version of this talk at Elan Valley Visitor Centre within our StarLab Planetarium.
In the past, we have also moved outside to undertake an activity using learners holding scale models representing the sun and planets. This is a fun way to try and understand the massive distances and sizes involved.
