SciDome: Designed around teaching requirements

SciDome planetariums are uniquely designed for immersive science education. As the inventors of the educational planetarium, Spitz technologies and teaching resources provide the best, most diverse teaching options possible.

Unlike other planetarium systems, SciDome’s realtime software is made for classroom teaching as well as dome simulation. Students using Starry Night and The Layered Earth in their schools can visualize, experiment, and learn with the same powerful software that drives the fulldome planetarium. Dome operators can share their tours of space or the Earth – extending the learning experience to the students’ classrooms, or homes.

With every SciDome system Spitz installs, we include detailed curriculum for both classroom teaching and immersive dome education. Spitz’ unique Fulldome Curriculum gives planetarium operators the resource they need to present lessons on virtually any topic in astronomy, from planets and moons, to orbital dynamics, physics, astronomy-history, deep space, and much much more.
