Planetarium 1

A journey through the universe

Contents

  • In the planetarium the pupils are taken on a journey through the universe where they meet the stars and constellations visible in Sweden during the winter.
  • Our teaching personnel guide the pupils.
  • What does the universe contain?
  • How does day follow night and night follow day?  
  • Why are different stars and constellations visible at different times of the year?
  • How do we use the night sky to interpret the world around us? How have we done this in the past?

The aim is that the pupils should after the visit know how the Earth moves, how night and day arise, and why different stars and constellations are visible at different times of the year. They should also be familiar with some of the most common stars and constellations visible in winter.

Planetarium 2

Myths, sagas, time and navigation

Contents

  • In the planetarium the pupils are taken on a journey through the universe where they meet the stars and constellations visible in Sweden during the winter.
  • Our teaching personnel guide the pupils.
  • They are shown how different constellations have been created and given different names in different regions, by different peoples with different faiths.
  • How do we use the night sky to interpret the world around us? How have we done this in the past?
  • Creation myths and our interpretation of the world
  • Why and how have we used stars to navigate and measure time?
  • Various constellations: in the Nordic region, Europe and the southern hemisphere.
  • The pupils are to realise that the night sky appears different in the southern and northern hemispheres.

The aim is that the pupils after the visit are to be aware that different peoples, regions, societies and religions have created their own interpretations and knowledge systems around the Earth and the universe. They should also be familiar with some of the most common stars and constellations visible in winter, and understand that it is possible to measure time and navigate with the aid of the night sky.

Planetarium 3

How we use the night sky to interpret the world around us, and how we have done this in the past

Contents

  • In the planetarium the pupils are taken on a journey through the universe in which they meet the stars we can see in the night sky. They meet also some galaxies, and learn their locations and the functions they have.
  • Our teaching personnel guide the pupils.
  • How is a star created and how does it die?
  • What is light on its journey through the universe?
  • Time in the universe
  • Distances in the universe, the relationships between neighbouring heavenly bodies, planets in our local region 
  • The pupils are to realise that the night sky appears different in the southern and northern hemispheres.

The aim is that the pupils after the visit should appreciate the infinity of the universe relative to our place on Earth. That light has travelled through the universe for huge amounts of time before reaching us. That stars emit light as a result of the nuclear fusion that is proceeding in their cores.

45 minutes per show
When:
