This is a fantastic immersive space-themed STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) learning centre at Keighley College, where you can explore the stars in our planetarium, play a vital role in a team working in our mission control, or maybe even travel to our space station. The centre delivers exciting and engaging events in a unique environment.
We offer high impact Team Building sessions. The STAR Centre environment breaks down barriers and offers the opportunity to tackle issues such as communication, problem solving and time and task management in a fun and memorable way that will improve team morale, and increase cohesion.

The STAR Centre offers Team Building events are both fun and highly effective. The facility uses an immersive space themed environment to allows us engage staff in unique problem solving challenges. Using our Briefing Room, Planetarium, Mission Control and Space Lab, teams are challenged to overcome communication issues to address a series of tasks. This could be for example curing a space virus, choosing the right equipment to take into space, or solving the mystery of the body on Mars. These scenarios take people out of the day to day and allow everyone an equal opportunity to participate.
The Star Centre staff designed a fantastic event (following our brief) for 20 newly qualified junior doctors aimed at developing their communication and teamwork skills. The event was “out of this world” and all the more powerful by taking the participants out of their comfort zone in a fun and completely non-threatening environment where everyone was ‘equal’. We launched a group of individuals and landed a team!
