The Planetarium popularises not only astronomy but also general scientific and technological knowledge for all levels of society. It is a multifaceted organisation dedicated to astronomy education for all levels, from nursery through to retirement age. It is the Planetarium's unique ability to adapt to changing audience needs that have enabled it to stay at the forefront of science education since its formation. For example, children attending Special Needs schools have a wide range of abilities. The Planetarium offers Special Needs visitors the opportunity to explore astronomy and space science and to see the spectacular objects that can be seen in the Solar System and beyond, at a level appropriate to the pupil’s abilities.
