Mayo High School

Mayo High School joined the GeoDome network in 2007, upgrading their existing 9m Spitz planetarium with a 500 series projection system and Uniview. The digital projector is placed “south” or in front of the starball. This enables simultaneous operation of the starball and the digital projector, and increases pixel density in the audience’s main focal area.

Mayo is part of the Minnesota Regional Planetarium Network, a mix of fixed and portable GeoDome systems running Uniview, sharing costs and program development. Along with founding partner Minnesota Planetarium Society (now at the Bell Museum), these sites include GeoDome Evolvers at Mankato East High School, Como Elementary, Southwest Minnesota State University, University of Wisconsin River Falls; GeoDome Theaters at North Dakota State University, and The Journey Museum; and a GeoDome Portal at Jackson Middle School Observatory.
