North Carolina Museum of Natural Science

The North Carolina Museum of Natural Science has one of two GeoDome Theaters acquired in 2009 through a NOAA Ocean Education grant, awarded to the “Using Marine Mammals to Communicate Solutions to Ocean Issues” project. A partnership with the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, the program helps teens ages 12-17 to understand how marine mammals are affected by climate change and inspires them to be part of solutions. The content was developed in collaboration with The Elumenati.

The two GeoDomes will travel to institutions around North Carolina to showcase the Marine Mammals project in 2011 and 2012, as well as presenting at major conferences for marine and climate educators.
