The Fractal Dome is a workshop and dome experience specially designed for schools, to support learning and development in maths, science and art.
The Fractal Dome programme takes place in a mobile dome with a 360 degree screen and also includes a workshop enabling pupils and students to interact with fractals, before the dome show. The dome comes to your school and can be set up in a hall or large drama studio.
Fractals is the spectacular, award-winning fulldome planetarium show that takes viewers on a tour of the fractals in nature and zooms through infinitely complex mathematical fractals. Featuring original music, the show is both educational and highly entertaining, and suitable for audiences Year3 and up.
While these fractal zooms are mathematical abstractions, audiences are always amazed to recognize that patterns of nature -- shapes such as trees, lightning, coastlines, insects, bacteria, seashells and more - can all be found within a fractal zoom. Each fractal tells the story of the processes that created it -- whether the erosion of a canyon, the evolution of a galaxy, or the computation of an equation. The powerful lesson from this exploration - the Butterfly Effect - is how small changes to a system can lead to dramatic changes in the outcome.
