The NOAA Science on a Sphere Explorer system has been installed in the UC Davis Tahoe Science Center in Incline Village, Nev., and is available upon request in the 3D Theater. The system was additionally added to a large monitor available to visitors outside the 3D Theater.
Science on a Sphere Explorer use datasets, models and animations of earthquakes, atmospheric storms, climate change data and more to explain environmental processes in a way that is simultaneously intuitive and captivating. UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center (TERC) will show these videos, data sets and various interactive content to enhance or expand regular Tahoe Science Center tours open to the public.
TERC currently uses the Science on a Sphere Explorer content for school field trips, engaging students with visualizations and data presentation that augment existing programs focused on earthquakes, landforms and changing Earth temperatures.
Advanced reservations are required for docent-led tours of the UC Davis Tahoe Science Center available Tuesdays to Saturdays. | RSVP tahoe.ucdavis.edu
