Because it is just so easy, safe and risk-free. TZP Planetarium requires just a large room and a 240v power supply to set up the entire system in your own school. No buses to arrange, no students to manage in unfamiliar surrounds, no fear of inclement weather, no personal management risk for the teachers,. The students and their teacher simply enter the dome through the special airlock, take a seat and enjoy the educational experience .
Our dome has a recommended capacity of 40 students and 30 adults.
The dome and projection system only take roughly 45 minutes to set up. Your presenter will arrive around one hour prior to the first display to ensure everything is fine, and to answer any questions before any students arrive. It will take approximately the same time to pack away.
No. You enter by walking through the special airlock. This airlock allows you to walk in without having to bend down and crawl in like other systems. Entry is much easier and far safer than the older type of domes.
Inside the dome air conditioner is installed. Blower pulls-out hot air.
Our Planetarium regularly displays all over South-India. We also travel to areas further afield when requested, however a small increase in fees is required to cover the additional travel costs.
Each session runs for approximately 45 minutes and we cram a lot of information in. We generally manage 7 sessions in a normal school day but we can do 8 if the school wishes to run through their recess and lunch periods.
