Armagh Planetarium is a multifaceted organisation dedicated to astronomy education for all levels, from nursery through to retirement age. It is the Planetarium’s unique ability to adapt to changing audience needs that has enabled it to stay at the forefront of science education since its formation.
Armagh Planetarium offers a curriculum-broadening experience for school visitors and our educational programme has been designed to dovetail with the new curriculum. Our aim is to demonstrate to our visitors the amazing objects that exist in the cosmos, but to do it in such a way that they do not see our efforts as formal teaching. We call this ‘learning by stealth’.
