Explore the wondrous night sky at the Rand Show 2017

by / No Comments / April 10, 2017

Enjoy an out-of-this-world experience as you explore outer space in Edudome’s mobile inflatable planetarium, part of the Rand Show’s Science and Technology experience.

There are several fascinating shows that cater to everyone from toddlers up, covering the myriad wonders of the universe. Step into the inflatable planetarium and look heavenwards to learn more about solar and lunar eclipses, black holes, galaxies and space exploration, the phases of the moon, how the sun was formed, and travelling to the moon.

Visitors can choose which presentation they’d like to see, so come back as many times as you like during the day and see if you can watch them all. Shows will run every day, from 14-23 April 2017, starting at 10 am, with the last show at 6 pm.

And when you’re finished exploring the galaxy, check out the rest of the attractions in the Science and Technology hall, from a maze of prehistoric wonders, and gaming with PlayStation, to wandering through SAASTA’s Great South African Inventions exhibition, and watching an explosive science show with the Nutty Scientists, plus loads of exhibits.

It’s all part of the lineup of top-class entertainment at this year’s Rand Show. South Africa’s biggest consumer expo is the only show to offer attractions covering everything from sport, motoring and military, to design, animals, gardening, health and beauty … there’s an entire day out for the whole family packed into each Rand Show ticket.
