Learn to operate Science on a Sphere (SOS), the global visualization theater located in Memorial Hall. The theater, which was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), features a 6 foot spherical projector screen suspended so that 4 projectors can show planetary processes, geographic data, and real-time atmospheric and oceanic events. Trained users can utilize the theater to support academic curriculum, to present to campus organizations, and to host outreach events. (Note: personal use is not permitted.) The training will feature an introduction to SOS, rules and procedures for utilizing the theater, as well as hands-on training to learn how to use the system. We'll explore the content available through NOAA (see http://sos.noaa.gov/datasets/) as well as discuss the next steps for developing original content. Those completing training will be able to access the self-serve reservation system and will receive JAC card access.
