Dear Colin,

Many thanks for an excellent morning on Wednesday and for sharing all the great photos you took (at our request). All the children and adults thoroughly enjoyed the planetarium experience and it made a great contribution to British Science Week. Both the presentations were interesting, challenging and relevant to the different key stages.

We will try and get some pupil voice quotes to you for impact.

Many thanks again for a great morning of inspiring space exploration!

Best wishes,

Nicola Dobson

Good Morning Colin,

"We all thoroughly enjoyed our planetarium experience yesterday. It was the perfect way to kick start Science Week. I took lots of photographs, which will hopefully go onto our Facebook page. 

I am also very pleased to hear that you enjoyed lunch with us. You certainly earned it! 

Once again, thank you so much for providing such an informative and enjoyable experience". 

Kind regards

"Our year 5s loved having Colin and his planetarium in. His vast knowledge and enthusiasm really rubbed off on the children at the beginning of our space topic - which they are now hugely enthused about. It was great seeing the children have their questions answered by an expert on the subject."

"Dear Colin,
Thank you for coming to TLG Wakefield and setting up the planetarium for us, in my opinion I found the planetarium really interesting.  I learned a lot of different things, I enjoyed when we were lying down watching and learning about space.  I also found it interesting when we zoomed in to the planets and bodies and when it was moving around us.  It made me feel as though I was exploring through the Solar System".

"The planetarium visit gave children the opportunity to experience awe and wonder within the dome as they were taken on a thrilling tour of the Solar System.  Colin was extremely knowledgeable, fully answered children’s question and the overall experience left children excited about Science and space exploration - a perfect activity as part of our science week"!
