The Dinosaur Show
The show includes immersive full dome 360 degree images of dinosaurs. Our giant 360 degree projector is used to walk through a dinosaur landscape.
The show starts with time travel back to the Jurassic times and pictures of early earth landscapes. The programme then gives an interactive introduction to dinosaurs and talks about the fossils in the local Jurassic coast. 360 degree pictures of dinosaurs are used in the show. Real dinosaur fossils for the children to hold and examine are included.
The show ends with possible ways of dinosaur extinction such as a large meteorite. We then look at the stars using the planetarium. We observe many shooting stars and the night's sky.
An extensive Rocks and Fossils collection is available to examine and some sample can be purchase by the children, if desired. Makes a great day suitable for reception onwards and can include KS1/KS2 materials with rocks and soils.
