The Arkansas SkyDome Portable Planetarium and Space Science Museum travels to schools and organizations across Arkansas and parts of our surrounding states to get students excited about space and science.
With the most advanced digital portable planetarium projection system in the state, this unique immersive experience can take your students across the universe.
We also bring up to 8-10 tables (supplied by the host) worth of earth / space science exhibits. These can include astronaut autographs going back to project Mercury, NASA memorabilia, model rockets, soil samples from around the world, Arkansas minerals, meteorites, fossils and more.
Weather permitting your program can also include a large GPS telescope, that gives students the opportunity to view objects in the real sky!
Our planetarium sets up in your large indoor space bringing a star filled experience to your students. In addition to professionally produced programs, the presentations include live, grade appropriate tours of the current night sky that encourages students to go outside to explore the heavens themselves. For younger students (2rd and below) we offer a short introduction to the constellations by telling some of the fun stories of the stars.
Looking for an out of this world activity?
Whether your a library looking for a summer program, a scout group wanting to help your scouts get a space badge, or any other civic group looking to create a memorable evening for kids of all ages, we can help!
“The heavens declare the glory of God.” – Psalms 19:1
Studies tell us one of the reasons youth leave church is because of conflicts between faith and science. Using apologetics found in the Scriptures and the visual power of the planetarium we show students how nature and the Bible complement each other.
Is it Christmas time? Be sure to ask about our faith affirming program that seeks to answer the question “What was the Star of Bethlehem? ”
