Recent teacher feedback:

  • “We had a wonderful excursion to the Science Space. The staff were flexible and attentive. They were prepared for our visit and guided us through every moment. The staff that led the planetarium and science shows were informative and engaging and tailored the information to the age of students. We also had a student in a wheelchair and the staff were very accommodating” – Laura, teacher
  • “Thank you for hosting Year 10 from Finley High School. The Planetarium and Liquid Nitrogen shows were definite highlights of our recent excursion. Thanks for the fabulous experience!” – Yr 10 teacher, Finley H/S
