Our Most Popular School Assembly: The SkyDome Planetarium
Our SkyDome Planetarium assembly is widely known by schools across the country and is by far our most popular assembly. Why? Because in this assembly, our high-end portable planetarium transforms your indoor space to outer space to give students a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
In the SkyDome Planetarium, students are amazed as they enter our inflatable dome filled with vivid projections of outer space. Once our mobile planetarium is set up in your classroom or gymnasium, your students will begin a fascinating 45-minute tour of the Northern Hemisphere from right inside their school.
During the SkyDome Planetarium assembly, students will obtain knowledge of:
- Every planet in our solar system
- Greek mythological characters and their correlation to the Milkyway
- How outer space changes based on different seasons
- The solar system from different locations on earth
This educational and riveting assembly meets many State Standards requirements.
This assembly comes in two different sized domes depending on your available performance area size and student needs: one that fits in a classroom (40 students at one time) and one that fits in a gymnasium (90 students at one time). Though our planetariums can be quite large, our technology is quick to set up and requires minimal assistance. Our planetarium is also handicap-accessible.

Millside Elementary in Michigan discusses their experience with the SkyDome Planetarium in a Times Herald article. One student says “‘I also liked the meteor shower but I liked the constellations, too. I liked the dragon one.’” Mater Academy Mountain Vista in Nevada left us a sparkling review as well:
"We loved this! Teachers were very pleased with the presenter and most impressed that students returned to class with even more questions and asking to do units on the stars! We will definitely consider this for next year"
