The ultimate school tour experience specially for Space Week 2019!

This year’s workshop will focus on Exoplanets! To coincide with the anticipated launch of ESA’s Cheops spacecraft, students will compare different solar systems to our solar system and learn how scientists hunt for exoplanets. Children will model the transit method of spotting exoplanets and investigate the factors that affect the type of planets that we are able to find.

With the support of ESERO Ireland, Supernova Tours are offered at a discounted rate for Space Week 2019 and FREE to DEIS schools.
