Our Mars-themed Morning Stars morning includes a planetarium show and interactive workshop in a relaxed environemnt for SEND groups. 

Join our Royal Observatory Astronomers for a friendly and calm morning of exploring Mars and space in a planetarium show followed by a slot for a workshop.

There will be no obligation to stay for the full duartion and exit and re-entry to both the planetarium show and workshop is okay. In our workshop take a virtual walk on Mars with our virtual reality activity to feel what it’s like to step onto the planet and identify features on the Martian surface. This will be combined with meteorite handling and a chance to ask astronomers about the possibility of life on Mars.
