ExploraDome Outreach: The Dome Goes On the Road!
The Bell Museum has a traveling ExploraDome where age-appropriate lessons delivered underneath a 25-foot diameter dome can be brought to schools and community events. The traveling ExploraDome system is the first portable dome in the world built around the dynamic scaling software known as Uniview. The ExploraDome program inspires minds and leaves a lasting impression on visitors.
