We are delighted to have Big Bear Planetariums at our Sunday Family event at Newport National school. Their state-of-the-art mobile planetariums using Fulldome 360-degree 3D digital projection technology have stunning graphics and advanced computer simulations. They will also offer a fully interactive learning environment which is educational and fun. Discover the many fascinating facts about our Universe and learn from their fully qualified Astro Officers.
