Nanocam, a trip into biodiversity
Namocam is the next recommended film for the Bio Dome.
For the older student Y5 or 6/KS3 and KS4, under a microscope with the award winning film called Nanocam.
Nanocam, a trip into biodiversity is the fulldome show that shrinks you down to the size of an insect and flies you through the eye of a needle. It offers a unique, motivating, didactic and funny approach to living things that has never been seen like this before. In a computer two young guys plan a project for school and discover images of an electron microscope using the latest 3D animation technology, leading to a 3D joyride into each kingdom of living things. We discover their characteristics, their importance for the ecosystems, their value for human beings and their inner beauty.

The award-winning Supervolcanoes looks back at rare classes of eruptions that have marshaled the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The program moves beyond Earth to explore the impact of giant volcanic eruptions around our solar system.
Audiences will fly down to Neptune’s frigid moon Triton, and onto the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiter’s moon Io. On a visit to a legendary North American hot spot, Yellowstone National Park, the film asks: can a supervolcano erupt in our time?
Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
The Dynamic Earth
Dynamic Earth is an immersive fulldome program that explores the inner workings of Earth’s climate engine. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere.
Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes. Year 3 to adult age range.
