"Raised some brilliant philosophical questions from the children - lots of great, critical thinking and higher level discussion generated. Well pitched for Y6 level children"
"Mario is the most professional presenter. His inflatable dome is amazing. His knowledge is outstanding. All staff and children had the most wonderful time. This is the second time Mario has visited Oakfield Preparatory School and he will definitely be invited back again"
- "It was cool to see how we all descend from one tiny thing
- We see the Earth as so big but there could be so much more out there - what if other life is searching for us?
- I liked how it was so interactive and visual
- Made me realise how insignificant we are in the universe
- When the visuals moved it felt like we were moving"

Online review and teacher comments after 325 staff and special needs students (age 4-19, including 35 wheelchair users) enjoyed a 7m digital dome experience over two days with the immersive films Enigma, Great Planet Adventures, Little Star That Could, Space Shapes and We Are Aliens:
"All the children were mesmerised by what they saw. The planets, moon, beautiful lights, music and visual effects of space. A truly stimulating and relaxing experience. Some children lay down to truly experience the dome effect and others were reaching out trying to touch, saying 'touch' and 'wow!'"
"Immersive Theatres spent two very busy and stimulating days delivering all things 'space' to our large Special School in South Wales. Mario impressed us all with the flexibility of the programmes, incorporating great audio visual experiences and the efficient organisation of our different groups"
"Lovely interactive experience that really captured pupils' attention. It was definitely a 'wow' moment that was informative and enjoyable. Thank you"

I also know the staff who came into the dome at lunch time thoroughly enjoyed that so thank you for offering that!"
