Coming in 2023; Coasting Along will be Ingram Planetarium’s first full-dome film production. Come explore the Carolina coastline from the perspective of those that live and work here. Not only is this vibrant environment a beloved vacation spot for millions of people around the country, but for those who sustain its economy, it provides a wealth of natural resources. In recent years, this iconic area has been changing and it is up to all of us to preserve the wonders of the Coastal Plains region so these beaches can be with us for generations to come. We can no longer coast along…
Coasting Along is proudly a part of the NISE Network’s Space and Earth Informal STEM Education Project in collaboration with Arizona State University and NASA through the Earth and Space project-based professional learning community.
Coasting Along is a winner of the 2021 SciComm Make prize through Sigma Xi and Science Talk, a project that brings together interdisciplinary teams of scientists, artists, and science communicators. The teams compete for funding to create innovative artwork and films that effectively and broadly communicate scientific evidence to the public.
Presented in standard film for viewing comfort outside a full-dome theater, this demo captures the vision of Coasting Along, a full-dome film about the Carolina coastline. This demo was created for presentation at the 2022 Science Talk conference as part of the SciComm Make project.
