Education with Milky-Way.Kiwi

We run the 

Astrobiology Dome for your school or event

 

The Astrobiology Dome is our brand new portable planetarium. With it, we bring a model Mars rover, telescopes (solar and an 8″ Dobsonian) Astroreality 3D augmented reality models of the Solar System and on our first visit to your school, we give you a year of astronomy follow-up with SLOOH for a class of your students. 

You can also get these programmes separately and you can buy the Astroreality products online in our shop.

Milky-Way.Kiwi supports the New Zealand Astrobiology Network (NZAN) with education services infrastructure and expertise.  Beyond our school visit, through NZAN, your students can benefit from mentorship, astrobiology school holiday programmes, such as Spaceward Bound New Zealand, Seeds in Space, and exclusive talks from our Mars and Planetary sciences experts. Our activities are undertaken under the “Moon to Mars” banner. 

Matariki

The stars of Matariki are now recognised across New Zealand as an important part of Te ao Māori .
 
We can teach you all about their science and we can help you find them in the sky. A favourite moment of the planetarium show is flying through the stars of Matariki and see how they are aligned in space. We also talk about what these stars mean for other cultures and what people around the world thought about them. 
 
Your students can use SLOOH through the year to photograph these stars in detail with powerful telescopes. Slooh has quizzes and teachers guides to support your quests.
