The Edge, University Of Bath

The University of Bath Discovery Dome is an immersive space for  people to discover different topics and to engage with topics in new ways. The dome uses a projection system to provide a full 360o  experience and with our lights and sound you and your students will be fully immersed in our exciting shows.

This 20 minute show will take you inside the human brain. The brain is the most fascinating part of the human body. We use it every second of every day, but what does it do? Many scientists across the world are trying to understand exactly this. In this show we travel into the brain and explore how it has changed during human evolution.  We focus on what happens to our brain when we  use our senses—sight, sound, smell, touch and taste . We also explore what happens to our senses as we get older.

The Discovery Dome shows are part of a wider launch event for the Bath Taps into science Festival. There will be lots of activites going off in the same location including crafts, interactive science exhibition stands, demonstration talks all ending with a talk about the Science of Dr Who. The whole event runs from 10am-3pm, so feel free to stay around before/after the show to enjoy the activites on offer. 



How much do the tickets cost? 

The tickets are free of charge, but we do have an option for you to give a donation towards the organisation of the festival. The Bath Taps into Scinece Festival is run by the University of Bath, but is funded through sponsorship and donations, all money raised form your donations will suport the festival in 2019. You do not have to give a donation, it is completely optional. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Ideally you will bring a printed ticket or use the Eventbrite app so we can check you in. If you don't have either on the day don't worry we can check you in manually using your name.


Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes that is not a problem.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No, the show is suitable for all ages, but be aware that the dome is an enclosed space with lights and sounds. At times it might go dark iside the dome so it may not be suitable for young children worried about the dark. 


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The shows are avaible as part of a larger event at the Edge at the University of Bath. Parking is availble free of charge in the East Car Park of the University.  For more details see the University of Bath parking webpages.
