Event description

Description

I have booked the seminar room in the Physics and Astronomy building (B46) for Tuesday 23rd January. There will be 5 shows, with a maximum of 33 people per show. I have added rough age bands as a guide, but you know your children best, so feel free to book on to whatever show you feel is most appropriate.

You need to book a ticket for every person going into the dome. If you are not planning to go into the dome then you do not need to book - but we can only fit 33 people in, so everyone who plans to go in must register a ticket. For very little children, they will probably need a grown-up with them - it is very dark at times and can be a bit loud. But for older children, it is your call if grown-ups come in or not. Although, I think it is great fun for all ages and a nice thing to do as a family. There will be seats outside for people who aren't keen on the dark, noise or enclosed space.

As said before we are suggesting a donation of £2 per person. We appreciate some people have large families or might find it expensive, but please book anyway and just donate if you can. We have actually run out of funding now, so your donations will help go to the upkeep of the dome and helping us to put more shows on in the future. My paypal address is vphilcox@gmail.com - please pay friends and family as to avoid fees.

Show times and suggested age ranges:

1600 - Ages 6 and under
1650 - Ages 5 - 8
1740 - Ages 7 - 11
1830 - Ages 10 - 13
1920 - Ages 14+

The shows will all be of the same format, but we will just use more technical terms and maybe talk about more difficult science concepts for the older children. All the shows will consist of a short video about astronomy, a 360 degree Aurora Borealis view, and then a tour of the night sky. So if you cannot make the time for your children's age, have multiple children, or the show time for your suggested age range is booked, please feel free to book on to another if you feel your child would still enjoy it.

Please feel free to message me on Facebook with any questions (Victoria Lepingwell) or you can email me at V.A.Lepingwell@soton.ac.uk - any feedback or suggestions welcome, as I really want to get as many as you involved as possible and for you all to come and experience the Astrodome as I love astronomy and home educating.
