A traveling inflatable theater is wowing students at some local elementary schools. The dome theater uses a high-definition projector to bring lessons to life in an immersive environment.
Hundreds of students at Iroquois Elementary visiting the Dome Friday to expand on topics they are studying in science class. The subjects included ranged from paleontology to extreme weather.
Diane Phillips, Iroquois Elementary School Teacher, says, “rather than for us to present the lesson in the classroom, this brings the lesson to them in a different form and it’s more exciting for them.”
Brian Bronson, Iroquois Elementary School Principal, says, “It’s an opportunity for them to experience a 3-D world that they may not get to experience otherwise.”
The dome theater will travel to Edison Elementary on Monday.
