Sky Dome FAQ

Q: What is SKY DOME?

A: The Sky Dome is an inflatable, portable planetarium that looks a little like a giant igloo. The dome is composed of a dome made from a special opaque vinyl, and a projector, which displays images on the inside of the dome. The projector produces bright light, which is fully adjustable by the user.

Q: Does the sky Dome travel to our place or we must come to your place?

A: Both options are available. The Sky Dome can be quickly and easily set up in most gymnasiums or other large rooms with a high ceiling. It has delighted students in hundreds of schools around the world and we are confident that you will be thrilled by the excitement and enchantment that our programs offer. All presentations are tailored for each age group and will provide appropriate academic content. We do have the movies in different languages (mainly in English and some in Arabic)

Q: How many students fit per show?

A: The number of people that can fit any of the domes depends on the age, weight and withered chairs required or not. Groupings by age/grade allows our scientist presenters to tailor each performance to the comprehension level of that audience. The 6m dome can accommodate in general up to 30 children or up to 25 persons in a children-plus-adults show. However, the 8m dome can accommodate up to 60 children or up to 55 persons in a children-plus-adults show.

Q: Does the student audience size include adults?

A: Yes, it does. Adults take up just as much space – if not more – than a child.

Q: What information do you need from us when making a booking?

A: In addition to a conversation about which show/content you’d like, we need to know how much time we must deliver each show and how many participants there will be at each show.

Q: Can you use the dome outdoors?

A: The dome cannot be used outdoors as it would be affected by wind and rain, but it may be used within a shaded and/or well protected area (weather permit is required).

Q: How long does it take to set up and take down?

A: About 25 to 30 minutes for set up and take down. However, if we have to leave the dome in place, for next day, then only about 5 minutes is needed to inflate the dome.

Q: How do I get in? Do I have to crawl?

A: You need to enter the 6m dome through larger zipped slot connected to the front of the dome in the 6m dome. The entrance to the 8m dome is through a tunnel attached to the dome which is large enough for adults to crawl through. For those who are not able to crawl, the sides of the dome can be lifted up and over people.

A: Staff normally expect to travel within Doha City. Contact our head office to discuss options if you are outside this area.
