Planetarium sessions

The planetarium session consists of several parts. Initially, we make an astronomical projection6 and then we explain the sky with the simulator. We will see the planets and stars visible that night and travel back in time to observe how their positions change over the hours and days. We will also focus on the constellations, figures that ancient civilizations drew in the sky and that have reached our days. We will also travel outside the Earth to see the Sun and the planets that make up the Solar System more closely. Finally we will contemplate the secret that hides the planetarium and that makes it unique in the world!

Below you have a brief summary of the projections you can choose:

3, 2, 1 LIFTOFF!

A group of hamsters live in the middle of the mountains of junk in a landfill.
Among them stands out Elon, a hamster who likes science a lot, unlike his companions who don’t take it very much
seriously One fine day something mysterious from outer space falls into the landfill.
Inside the crater formed by the impact is a robot that has fallen from the spaceship in which it was travelling. Putting his scientific knowledge to the test, Elon must find a way to return the robot to the spaceship before it’s too late.


Vladimir the bear and James the penguin begin a new adventure aboard their spaceship, Polaris. Target: the aurora borealis. However, an unexpected impact on the ship and a landing in the middle of the jungle will raise new questions. What are meteorites and what are they made of? Why do shooting stars shine? Back on board the Polaris and with a new companion they will start a new journey through the Solar System to try to answer these questions applying, as always, the scientific method.


The poles of the planet Earth are very cold areas and where during the winter months there is hardly any
the light of the Sun arrives. What is the cause?
Is it the same on other planets? On board the ship Polaris, accompanied by Vladimir the bone and James the penguin, we will discover what is happening
in the other planets of the Solar System and, applying the scientific method, we will try to find an explanation that answers our questions.


Are you ready for takeoff?
We will accompany two children on a fantastic journey aboard a rocket made from a cardboard box. With the help of this rocket and the invaluable collaboration of a very special astronomy book, we will travel through the Sun and all the planets of the Solar System. We will be able to see them up close and discover their main characteristics.



5, 4, 3, 2, 1 action!!! In this activity we will discover details and curiosities about rockets and we will fly some of them powered by water and
air All children can enjoy the experience of taking off their first rocket.


Si mirem la Lluna, ja sigui directament, amb l’ajut d’un telescopi o bé a través d’una fotografia, veurem que la seva superfície és
irregular, amb zones més clares i altres de més fosques. Observarem també unes altres zones una mica misterioses, els cràters. Produïts per
l’impacte de meteorits a la superfície lunar, reproduirem aquest fenomen a petita escala i de forma molt divertida amb materials casolans.
