DIGITAL PORTABLE PLANETARIUM
We Can Bring It!
Immerse your students in the universe with Polaris our digital portable planetarium. With Polaris you will be able to stand on the Moon and look back at Earth, experience a Martian sunrise, and even see what the Milky Way galaxy looks like.
One day of programming is $450 per day plus mileage; travel time and accommodation, if applicable, plus applicable taxes. For bookings located outside the Metro Vancouver Area, accommodation fees apply. In addition, if Polaris requires cleaning because of the space provided, a cleaning fee will be charged.
Polaris Is Big!
Polaris is a large dome that can be easily set up in a school gym or drama room. The ideal area would have these features:
- Any space with a high ceiling
- Large room, at least 7 x 7 x 4 metres (or 23 x 23 x 12.5 feet)
- Indoors, clean and low-noise level area
- Access to two 110 volt outlets in close proximity
Because of the size of Polaris, if the area is not adequate for setting it up, our staff may need to request an area that is more suitable.
We'll Fit Your Schedule
We will arrange the presentation schedule around your needs. For elementary schools we provide up to 6 presentations/day (20-30 minute presentations) and for secondary schools we provide up to 4 presentations/day (40 minute presentations).
