On June 17, 2022, Ocean Wise Sea Dome will be on site at four Saskatoon schools. The sea dome is an immersive, pop-up ocean adventure that is a planetarium-style six-metre dome that projects 360-degree 4K cinematic footage of the ocean and its creatures, “transporting” youth under the sea.

“The experience is designed to highlight connections between ocean health, climate change, and daily life – and get kids excited about ocean conservation,” according to a news advisory. “The day will also include marine artifacts and sessions on the Arctic.”
