The show that shrinks you down to the size of an insect and flies you through the eye of a needle…
“Nanocam: a trip into biodiversity” is a microscopic joyride into the five kingdoms of life. With the latest 3D animation technology and based on real electron microscope imagery, this show offers a unique, motivating, didactic and funny approach to biology that has never been seen like this before.
Join Hugo and Marcos as they rush to finish an assignment before heading off to the big game. But when they find the Nanocam microscope simulator online, their tedious task turns into a fascinating voyage of discovery into worlds they’d never dreamed of before.
Nanocam is one hour in length, featuring a 28-minute show followed by a presentation on the biological uses of electron microscopes. Ticket reservations are available online only. Remaining tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the door on the day of the show. The planetarium will open for seating 30 minutes before the start of each show. You must be in the theater 10 minutes before the show starts. Reserved seats will be released after this time to stand-by customers. There is no entry after the show begins.
