Birth of Planet Earth School Workshops

How did Earth become a living planet?

Scientists predict that our galaxy is filled with solar systems, including up to a billion planets roughly the size of our own. Yet why, in our search for exoplanets (planets orbiting other stars) have we yet to find one like the Earth? Drawing on current scientific ideas, supercomputer models and state-of-the-art visuals, this spectacular 360° film attempts to answer such ponderous questions. Students also get to handle the oldest object they will ever touch - a 4,600 million year-old meteorite - an unchanged relic dating back to the birth of the Solar System.

Format

Presenter-led discussion of the birth of planet Earth, including handling of a meteorite, preceded by a high-res 4K film.

Age Groups

Y5 - Y13, Higher Education

Witness the Violent Birth of our Planet

How did Earth become a living planet following the Solar System’s violent birth? Where did our Moon come from?

Is Our World Unique in the Milky Way Galaxy?

Will we ever find an exoplanet that shares the same size, tilt, orbit, and distance from its sun as the Earth (necessary attributes that contributed to the evolution of life on our planet)?
