Who: The Planetarium Education Group was the first company to introduce the Cosmodome Mobile Planetarium system to NSW schools, and only the second in Australia. We have the longest running and most experienced Cosmodome mobile planetarium operating in the Sydney and Hunter Regions and Our Cosmodome production was the first to gain Registration with the Performance for Schools Division of the Department for Education and Training in NSW.
The unique projection system was developed with our partners in Victoria and at the Swinburne University Astrophysics dept. and we use the most advanced mobile interactive technology and projection systems operating today.
Cosmodome's award winning technology has been stunning NSW viewers since 2005, and thousands of students have enjoyed this amazing and fun way to learn.
There is no other system operating that has our level of experience and cutting edge technology visiting schools today.
