Bio Dome is designed to explore science, biology, oceanography and geography in an interactive way. The Bio Dome visits schools and clubs, providing an additional science resource and presenting a different learning experience to children. See our full website -- click link www.bioecodome.co.uk
We provide an immersive digital 360 degree dome showing different environments and natural history shows (rocks/ fossils, under the sea and dinosaurs) to schools, colleges, youth clubs, scouts groups and playgroups. The service is provided in a blacked-out purpose built mobile domes which can be sited indoors using a school hall. Our domes are the most advanced digital domes in the country capable of showing 360 degree pictures and feature films.
Our COVID Secure Planetarium has PPE screens between the presenter and the Bubble Group. We have full air replacement inside the dome with circulation fans and special screens with a full Risk COVID Assessment for the school to inspect.
Bio Dome Programmes
KS1/2 on 'Environments' on land and the ocean.
KS1/2 on 'Under the Sea'. 'Weather'. 'Pirates and the Sea'
KS1/2 on 'Mini beasts' or 'Tropical Reefs'
KS1/2 on 'Endangered Animals'
KS2/3/4 on 'Biodiversity' with images of an electron microscope and the latest 3D animation technology showing the five kingdoms of living things. We discover their characteristics, form and their importance for the ecosystems and sustainability.
KS2/3- Down to Earth (Volcanoes and Earth's History)
KS2/3/4 on 'Dynamic Earth' covering climate, ocean currents, ocean life and the changing world. In this programme we will look at;
· Life and the carbon cycle. Earth's climate control system depends on the ability of living organisms to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and store it long term.
· Plate tectonics and its role in the carbon cycle. Audiences will learn that CO2 emissions from human activities now outpace volcanoes 200 fold.
· Perspective on climate change. The program fills in major gaps in the public's understanding of climate change, by placing it in a broader context of what shapes Earth's climate.
· Comparision with Venus. The story of our sister planet shows just how unique Earth is in its ability to regulate atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures.
• KS2/3/4 - 'Natural Selection'-- Adaptation and Evolution -- with our new film on Darwin
• KS2/3/4 - 'Origins of Life'. Start of life on Earth and possible life in the solar system.
