Everyone Can Explore the Solar System in the SkyDome Planetarium

Posted on Tue, Dec 20, 2016

SkyDome Planetarium has been our most popular school assembly program of all time for a reason: it's awesome!  The standard in portable field trips, SkyDome takes your whole school through the solar system, to the stars, and back again.  Ryan Thompson blasts you off on this cosmic journey in this short video.

Even though the SkyDome Planetarium is huge (36 feet in diameter and 15 feet tall), it still fits within most gyms and multipurpose rooms.  In California where gym space can be limited, we offer a smaller dome that can fit inside a large classroom.

The presentation itself covers all of the planets in our solar system (even Pluto and the other dwarf planets), discussion of the space program, constellations, Greek mythology, and even black holes.  Of course, the presentation is tailored for different grade levels (K-8) so nobody is overwhelmed by information, only by the experience.

Take your whole school on a field trip...without leaving your school.
