The planetarium debuted their inflatable Charles L. Matsch GeoDome Theater at Myers-Wilkins Elementary school, Wednesday.

The GeoDome allows several students to view a projected presentation on it’s ceiling giving students the feeling of stargazing. 

Students learned about the solar system, universe and were given a sky view of Lake Superior during their time in the GeoDome.
