Primary Schools

Discover the secrets of the universe and space travel! Our space lessons are interactive, we do experiments and we tune the content to the level of the group. For primary schools we offer space classes, guided tours and a space quest.

Guided tours


Class: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8
(Age: 6 till 12)
Language: Dutch or English
Time: 60 minutes 
Curriculum: 1 and 2

In addition to the space lessons, we provide educational tours with a guide. The tour leads through the permanent space exhibition and lasts for approximately one hour. A guided tour will include our highlights: the Soyuz Capsule by André Kuipers, the ISS and the Ariane rocket. A tour can always be adapted to the available knowledge of the group or a school project. The tours can easily be combined with a space lesson.
