Educational Outreach is a challenging, yet rewarding endeavor. You are taking your knowledge on the road to schools, scout troops, senior centers, and more. You have the opportunity to expand the minds of thousands over the course of a year. Yet you often juggle multiple topics, different audience types, and frenetic travel schedules without much time or money to spare. You want to wow your audiences, make a clear educational impact, and leave them wanting to learn even more.
We have years of outreach experience, and from day one have designed our solutions for the challenges you face.
Lessons are included on Astronomy and Earth Sciences, but it is easy to make your own lessons based on whatever time, place, and media you want to show.
We recommend getting someone to help you lift the dome and system into or out of a vehicle. The system, dome, and dome blower are all on wheels to facilitate transport. One person can set up or tear down a system and dome in 10 to 15 minutes.
Our Augmented Lessons functionality makes it a snap, since each lesson has suggested narration as well as command buttons to run software scripts or display media. We include online training with each purchase, and onsite training and online mentorship are available.
You will probably want to upgrade your projection system at least by the 10 year mark, although we have some customers with almost 20 years on their systems. Naturally this will vary based on the level of use and care that the equipment receives.
No! All of the software and data are housed locally on the system. Our web-based Universal Console connects to a WiFi access point within the system, not to an external network.
In addition to a lease to own program, Digitalis can provide resources to help you find grants and other funding sources. Take a look at our funding guide.
...and hundreds of organizations like yours.
