The Coolest A/V Club in the Universe: Science Visualization at the California Academy of Sciences
What happens when A/V geeks grow up? The Morrison Planetarium. Boasting the largest all-digital dome in the world, state-of-the-art projection and software, and the finest scientific minds—and best data—at its disposal, the California Academy of Sciences has some pretty awesome ways of educating the public. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the new Academy’s immersive theaters, digital exhibits, and production pipeline, as we take a whirlwind tour of the known universe.

I’m presenting alongside Chris Woodfield, Sr Network Engineer at Yahoo, and Alex Handy, director of the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment.
