Crosslake students enjoy ExploraDome

The ExploraDome visited Crosslake Community School Tuesday, April 19, to share the wonder of the solar system with students. Essentially a portable planetarium, the ExploraDome is a large inflatable dome with a projector that displays the night sky onto the interior surface of the dome. Children were ushered in by classroom and laid on the floor under the simulated night sky, where they learned about constellations and more.

In addition to its ability to show the night sky, speed up the movement of the stars and outline the constellations, the ExploraDome projector also allows students a visualization of blasting off the surface of Earth and looking at our planet from space. From there, they could travel to other planets, landing on the surface of Mars to see the rover or travelling all the way to Pluto, where they could see the surface of the dwarf planet compiled from the recently acquired photos. Other classes got to explore Saturn’s rings, or see Jupiter’s Giant Red Spot.
