Understanding global ideas in 3D is a challenge for anyone!  The Magic Planet makes it much easier to understand complex information about the Earth:

  • weather systems & climate change
  • earthquakes, volcanoes & plate tectonics
  • satellite tracking
  • geological history

Arts activities can be linked to polarising microscopes showing thin sections of rocks.

A popular activity involves children presenting their ideas on film using the Magic Planet and exhibition displays.
