"Mario visited our school yesterday, the children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and really enjoyed the experience of the dome. The children have been learning about Space this half term, it was brilliant as the children knew some of the information and Mario gave them extra/more facts about particular aspects of space. Mario also catered the show to what the children were interested in. My class were interested in the idea of black holes, so we went through a black hole at the end of the show!"

He was thorough and professional in the lead up, designing us a bespoke programme that worked around our timetable and suited our needs perfectly. On the day he was punctual and well-prepared on arrival, and when the day started he really wowed us! Mario’s knowledge and presenting style engaged our students instantly and took them on an amazing journey through space and time. He also found time to put on a Staff Relaxation Pod at lunch time and squeezed in an unexpected KS2 group right at the end of the day without any hesitation. We could not recommend Mario and Immersive Theatres highly enough and will definitely be rebooking. Thank you Mario from everyone at Channing School!"

Comments from parents of a 5 year-old who (together with 20 school friends) enjoyed a Star Wars-themed 5m digital dome birthday party with the 2-in-1 Performance, 3D Space Station, Famous Meteorite Handling, immersive film Space Shapes and a variety of bespoke 360° visuals:

"We can’t say enough how fantastic you were and how brilliant the show was. Your patience with the children, enthusiasm for the subject and event and professionalism made for a really successful (and non stressful!) day. The children loved it and the messages and feedback I’ve had from them and parents alike has been overwhelming. So thank you for all your hard work and the extra time you spent to add the personal touches that we so wanted to achieve. I think it’s fair to say you smashed it! I’ve had two parents who have asked for your contacts for people that weren’t even there so you really made a big impression"

"Mario traveled all the way from Bristol to our local village hall in Guildford with his 5m dome for our son's 5th Birthday party. We can’t say enough how fantastic he was throughout the process and how brilliant his performance was. Working closely with us for many weeks leading up to the party, he created an exciting programme of bespoke content, that resulted in a highly interactive show that combined the perfect balance of education and entertainment we wanted. I felt that he happily welcomed our ideas and embraced incorporating new elements to his programme, such as games and quizzes, to enable a 'reward' element to the party that were after. Mario' patience and rapport with the children (and with my demands!) made for a really successful and unique party"

Not only was Mario extremely well organised on the day, he helped to clear the hall in the morning and was very prompt. Before the day, the organisation and communication between us in planning for the day was outstanding. I never had to chase for any information. Everything was very clear and the diversity of shows available was extremely vast. There was something for every year group and for every science which was fantastic to be able to mimic this with what they are currently covering in lessons. I was so impressed with the service that we have already been discussing at JCoSS the possibility of doing this this again with Mario. With many thanks for all of the staff involved, thank you again for a fantastic day!"

"Immersive Theatres visited our village to give our children a full Planetarium Space Day on 30th January 2018. Mario ran 14 different performances for school pupils and public sessions from toddler to adult. He had a busy  day being with us from 7.30am to 9pm, helping us to raise at least £600 for the PTA. Next time we will endeavour to secure Grant funding with scope to raise even more. It was a fantastic day and we were hugely impressed with Immersive Theatres throughout. We would highly recommend the company and will absolutely book them again. The feedback from children and adults alike was superb. They were inspired, excited and really learnt lots. We particularly liked exploring the International Space Station and the introductory explanation/exploration of the night sky. I am sure many will never forget it. Mario was a pleasure to work with. He was highly professional, clear and helpful and enthusiastic from the first performance to the last. Thank you and we look forward to working with you again."

Written comments from 25 students in Years 7 & 8 after they enjoyed a 6m digital planetarium experience with the 2-in-1 Performance3D Space Station, Famous Meteorite Handling and 360° films We Are Stars, Dynamic Earth and Cell! Cell! Cell!:

Specific feedback on the film We Are Stars:

  • "I really enjoyed it. It helped me understand nuclear fusion and the journey of the elements.
  • I found it fascinating and fun. It's hard to believe that matter was part of the galaxy, then a dinosaur and now me!
  • The film goes through all my favourite physics topics! It was memorable and helped me understand life from the very beginning.
  • It was incredible to see such realistic visuals after I had already learned about nuclear fusion.
  • I have learnt where we really come from so I'm no longer confused."

Scout Leaders and parents' feedback after 60 beavers, cubs and scouts experienced a 5m digital planetarium adventure with the 2-in-1 Performance, 3D Space Station, Famous Meteorite Handling and 360° films We Are Aliens, Little Star That Could and We Are Astronomers:

"This was a terrific opportunity for our Scout Group. I sat in on 20 Beaver Scouts who were engaged and enthralled throughout. The talk was pitched at just the right level for these 7 - 8 year olds, but also without being patronising. Questions asked by the young people were answered thoroughly with the use of relevant graphics. The film about the little star was very well received, we all learned a lot in an accessible and entertaining way. Thank you, Mario"

"I thought it went really well and I was impressed"

"My son experienced the Planetarium with his Cub pack recently and he really enjoyed it. He said "The movie was really interesting and looking inside the International Space Station was amazing". All 3 age groups (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) experienced the Planetarium and the information and materials were suitable for each of the groups"
