I saw my entire Earth science astronomy unit presented in less than an hour. Even behaviorally challenged students were awed, attentive, and appreciative of this format.Kay McLeod - Buncombe County, NC
The comments I hear most after every lesson I present with the Evolver are "fantastic" and "awesome". The Evolver is such a joy to use, and has greatly expanded the quality and quantity of the lessons I can now present.Dennis Brinkman - Como Planetarium
The GeoDome is user-friendly and operations are very intuitive. The Elumenati is forward thinking, knows how to listen and works in a collaborative way.Larry Mascotti - Mayo HS Planetarium
I appreciate the professional hands-on approach from the Elumenati team - it's made my job that much easier and helped make the Immersive Theater a showcase system for our museum.Eric Knisley, NC Museum of Natural Sciences
The GeoDome’s capabilities have taken our level of teaching in directions we never dreamed of before. Light bulbs of understanding flash around the room on even difficult content areas.Matt Linke, University of Michigan
As an educator I am partial to the GeoDome’s truncated design. Placing the audience closer to the springline and filling their field of view with imagery creates an increased sense of immersion, and students react to it every time.Joel Halvorson - Founder, MnPS
The GeoDome is a place where our students can synthesize information and develop the aptitudes needed to tackle tough problems and foster creative thinking. Thanks to The Elumenati team for creating a vision for the future of learning spaces!Glen McCandless, Educational Technology Consultant
Data visualizations let our audiences see the direct impact of decisions they make. The GeoDome truly makes topics come alive, allowing people to understand how global issues impact them in their own community.James Fox - RENCI at UNC-Asheville
Our Geodome never fails to "wow" our audiences. I know I can count on the great folks at The Elumenati to be there when I have a question. The support I've received has been exceptional.John Iverson, Como Planetarium
The combination of the visual thrill and excellent topic made this experience accessible to kids who might have difﬁcult behavior issues in more typical learning environments.Sylvia Van Meerten - Autism Society of North Carolina
There are very few experiences that instantly transform our relationship with earth and the cosmos. The GeoDome invites participants on a magic carpet ride of learning and discovery.Kirk Bergstrom - CEO, WorldLink
In 2006, the Minnesota Planetarium Society (MnPS) worked with The Elumenati to pilot and implement a prototype GeoDome Theater, as the first portable outreach dome running Uniview. Coined the ExploraDome by the MnPS, this popular outreach dome has now reached over 120,000 students and other learners in Minnesota schools. Today, the ExploraDome program is managed by the Bell Museum of Natural History at the University of Minnesota. The MnPS and now the Bell Museum have built a successful business model, generating revenue through business sponsorships and direct fees. This “little planetarium that could” was recently ranked the 4th best planetarium in the US by Listosaur.com.
Joel Halvorson and Sally Brummel guide this effort, and they have been instrumental in pushing the interactive use of Uniview as a tool for teaching and learning. They have also been working with colleagues around the world to develop the use of networked domecast presentations, and have worked closely with NASA GSFC in the development of Earth science applications.
The ExploraDome is the founding partner of the Minnesota Regional Planetarium Network, a mix of fixed and portable GeoDome systems running Uniview, sharing costs and program development. These sites include GeoDome Evolvers at Mayo High School, Mankato East High School, Como Elementary, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Southwest Minnesota State University, University of Wisconsin River Falls; GeoDome Theaters at the University of North Dakota, and The Journey Museum; and a GeoDome Portal at Jackson Middle School Observatory.
