βœ¨πŸ”¬Last week our 2nd Grade #Westies were excited to check out The Dome at NCHS. The students and teachers were awestruck by the unseen components of our world that either move too slowly, too fast, or are too small for the human eye. Afterwards, students connected what they learned with hand- on activities that highlighted some of these phenomenons, such as magnetic fields, radio waves and infrared thermal imaging!

Grand Opening of The Dome πŸ”­πŸŒπŸͺ New Canaan Public Schools is proud to announce the grand opening of The Dome at New Canaan High School! The official ribbon cutting ceremony took place on April 30th at 4pm in a private event with members of the BOE, The Dome’s Planning Committee, Ad Council, PTC/PFA, and town officials, including current First Selectman, Dionna Carlson, former First Selectman, Kevin Moynihan. The Dome is a state-of-the-art interactive learning theater located in the high school’s former 1971 planetarium. The fully renovated space includes a 30ft ceiling-mounted dome screen, dual 4k projector system, LED cove lighting and 65 cinema-style seats to transform traditional education into a fully immersive visual, audio, and sensory experience for students. Attendees had the opportunity to tour the facilities and partake in a first-hand showing of the Dome’s capabilities, including a time-lapse of the earth’s rotation, close-up visualizations of microscopic organisms, and a virtual trip to the realms of outer space. Many thanks to everyone who made this dream a reality! We are so proud to provide this new dimension of learning to our K-12 students across all of our schools!
