CONI the little alien has landed in Antrim and Newtownabbey from a planet far far away called Beyond 100. He is very lost and bewildered but likes the look of the place he has arrived in. He very quickly meets and befriends some local school children and asks for their help by creating An Aliens Guide to NI. Through this project the children will explore similarities and differences of their fellow citizens whilst they develop An Aliens Guide featuring hobbies, food, names, language, history, sports, days out and other things unique to Northern Ireland.
