CELEBRATING THE SCIENCE OF SOUND
IN NEW EXHIBIT
Sonic Sensation presents a fun and informative opportunity to explore sound in our environment. Learn about the anatomy and physics of how we hear, find out about sound waves and what you can do to protect your hearing. 
Sonic Sensation consists of fourteen fun, interactive exhibits. There will be exhibit stations that allow you to experiment with different pitches and frequencies, make a movie soundtrack, and step into the ever-popular Scream Chamber! 
Bubblemania with Casey Carle
Witness the unique combination of science, art, and comedy in Casey Carle's stage show BubbleMania! Learn how bubbles form, why they're spherical, how to make a cube bubble and the science of bubble bursting - each topic related to the physical laws of the natural world. 

Carle is a trained actor who debuted BubbleMania in 1990. Carle has served as a consultant on soap bubble routines for Cirque du Soleil and has been featured on The Discovery Channel. He regularly performs across the United States and has traveled to Singapore, Mexico, and Japan to present BubbleMania.
New Dome Shows: "Journey to the Stars" 
and "Passport to the Universe" 

 
The dazzling Journey to the Stars carries visitors through space and time to experience the life and death of the stars in our night sky, including our own nurturing Sun. The show takes viewers on a tour of familiar stellar formations, explores new celestial mysteries, and discovers the fascinating story that connects us all to the stars.
Reviews
"Easily the most beautiful planetarium show I have ever seen" - The New York Times
 
"Entertainer Whoopi Goldberg's narration makes the complex topics seem like a thrilling tale around a campfire" - Scientific American


Traversing billions of light years, Passport to the Universe takes an incredible journey from our home planet and the Milky Way galaxy to the edge of the universe. Audiences fly beneath the rings of Saturn, into the heart of the Orion Nebula, and out into the vastness of the observable universe. 
Reviews
"The most eloquent summary of the museum's achievement will be the look on the faces of children...stunned by a virtual trek from Earth to the edge of the observable universe" - The New York Times 

"The show is as exciting as anything in a theme park, and yet it has great authority." - The New Yorker

Announcing $1 Dome Shows
Join us on SUPER TUESDAYS at the Center for Earth and Space Science Education! Every Tuesday, during the months of September and October,  tickets to each dome show will only be $1.00! Take advantage of this back-to-school special and see a dome show for less than the cost of a soda.
Back by popular demand: "Rock and Roll Friday" at the Dome Theater

On the third Friday of every month TJC's Science Center will present SpacePark360 at 7 p.m. and Rock on Demand at 8 p.m. Musical selections and graphic images will vary month to month.
 
SpacePark360 takes audiences on a wild, immersive ride through the solar system, recreating the experience of amusement park thrill rides - roller coasters, pendulums and more. 

Rock on Demand fills the entire 40-foot domed theater with vibrant graphics, completely enveloping visitors in a 360-degree view while the 16,000-watt, digital surround sound system plays rock hits ranging from the Beatles and Rolling Stones to The Doors and Aerosmith.
