Coronavirus (COVID 19)

Due to the changing situation with COVID-19 we have decided to cancel events with schools and school children until 30 May 2020. Since we won’t be carrying out face to face teaching we would not be able to guarantee having sufficient student mentors to supervise our face-to-face programmes. Our first priority is the well-being of our staff, students and visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact the programme manager / Imperial visitor if you have any questions or concerns and check the website for updated information.


Our primary planetarium days are designed to give primary students a chance to be immersed in space.

As part of the primary planetarium days school groups are able to visit Imperial's South Kensington campus and the Science Museum to engage in numerous activities. These include:

  • Inflatable planetarium
  • Science Museum Wonderlab visit
  • Workshop or 'Meet a Scientist' session*

*not all scientists will present on space/astronomy

Our Primary Planetarium Days will take place on Tuesday 24 March and Thursday 26 March 2020 (schools are able to book onto no more than one advertised Planetarium Day per term)
