About The Event
Teachers and school administrators, come to a special viewing of our Global Soundscapes planetarium to view incredible new programming that can be brought into your school! Global Soundscapes is an interactive educational experience for your classes that covers aspects of the Nature of Science standards while exploring sound energy, data collection and analyzation, and adaptations to environments. This event is open to teachers, school administrators, and their families only. You must present your school ID at the event to gain access to the show. Up to 4 guests allowed for free under one school ID. Additional tickets can be purchased if needed.
Global Soundscapes: Mission to Record the Earth
Listen...can you hear that? It’s the sound of the Earth! Global Soundscapes takes you on a sound safari to explore the health of our planet...with your ears. Travel the globe with scientists to investigate the spectacular soundscapes of Costa Rica’s rainforests, Hawaii’s coral reefs, and Mongolia’s vast grasslands. Learn how animals use sounds to survive and communicate in lush, but threatened environments. Experience basic acoustics through interactive activities and incredible slow-motion footage of pulsating musical instruments, vibrating vocal cords, and slobbering “raspberries.” With Global Soundscapes’ unique format—combining full-dome imagery, surround sound, and live presentation—you’ll hear the Earth in a whole new way. Watch the program trailer to see (and hear) for yourself: Watch the Trailer.
Our Planetarium is an inflatable dome. Guests sit on cushions on the floor of the planetarium to view the show. Due to the nature of our planetarium, the rest of the museum's exhibits will not be functional during this event so outside light and sound do not interfere inside the dome. Space is limited to 25 guests per show; reserving tickets in advance is required for this reason. On show night, please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled showing. Please call 850-664-1261, stop by the Science Center, or use our online ticketing option to reserve your tickets.
Shows begin at 5 and 6 p.m. and last approximately 45 minutes.
Our planetarium is sponsored by FPL
