Events at INTECH (Winchester) 2012-13

Post by INTECH Planetarium »

Dear all, here are some events at INTECH that might be of interest!

For those who don't know us: we are a large science-centre with a gobsmackingly gorgeous digital planetarium, based just outside Winchester. We have a large, free car park and are easy to find from all major routes. Venue and further info: http://www.intech-uk.com

World Space Week(end)
As in previous years, we'll be running a huge public event to celebrate World Space Week. Come along on October 6th & 7th (Sat/Sun) to meet space engineers and scientists, hold real moon rock, launch a rocket or even meet a Storm Trooper (last year we had R2D2 and Darth Vader too!). A great fun weekend, charged the same as a normal visit. Don't miss it!

(Webpage coming soon)
