Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 5m digital planetarium experience to 45 Year 5 pupils at Penygarn Community Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. I was invited to enjoy the comforts of the staff room while I waited for breakfast club to end. The morning was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, handling a meteorite and travelling through a future colonised Solar System. Thank you Penygarn Community Primary for a very pleasant visit.
