Exploration Dome – Mobile Planetarium at the Ballybrown NS

.Martin had a great time at the Ballybrown NS in Clarina, Co. Limerick

Some of the students were the first to see our newest Full dome Film : We Are Aliens

We heard the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Mr Lyons the Principal wrote this to us:

The Exploration Dome visited this school on Monday and Tuesday  October 14th and 15th. Every class from Junior Infants to Sixth visited the Dome. The reaction from children and teachers was unanimous. It was excellent. Children with Special Needs were also catered for and included in everything. Martin was wonderful with the children and made the whole experience one that will be spoken of for years to come. Afterwards, the children wrote about what they had learned and they have researched areas that interested them especially. I can recommend Exploration Dome wholeheartedly
