3D School Shows


We offer an ever growing list of 3D shows, a number of which have associated workshops and digital media competitions. Each of our shows is presented live, using our own interactive 3D software... they are not films!

Clicking on the item title or the "more:" link, will take you to each shows main page. You will find information about the room requirements  to host a 3D show here.

More than 25,000 students of all ages have taken part in one of our activities.

Gravity, is a travelling school show that is presented using Stereoscopic Projection, to create a memorable immersive 3D experience, that brings the “Wow” factor into the classroom to promote learning and understanding.

There are some common misconceptions about gravity and the way it works. This 3D show tackles them through a series of virtual experiments, that explain the basics of Newton’s theory of Gravitation, why satellites orbit the earth, why astronauts float about, and much, much more.

We then explore the formation of the universe and the part that Gravity, Dark Matter and Dark Energy have played, using material from the Institute of Computational Cosmology, University of Durham.

The Final part of the show looks at the Life and Death of Stars. Including, what will happen to our Sun and what happens when you fall into a black hole.

A voting system is used throughout the show to pose questions and capture responses.

This show can also be combined with the Gravity Challenge Workshops.

Over 5,000 pupils have already enjoyed this show, and over 24,000 have taken part in Digital Learning Foundation activities..
