State-of-the-art theatre brings 3D teaching and learning to students

KANSAS CITY, MO. - Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) students will be transported into a three-dimensional world of teaching and learning at Panterra Theatre, the newly-renovated video facility located at Southwest Early College Campus (SWECC).

Using the world's second "SciDome XD," an ultra-high resolution digital display system, students will be immersed in three-dimensional, digital surround-sound worlds: diving into the depths of the ocean, plunging into an active volcano, soaring through outer space, or following the Great Migration across the Serengeti.

The theatre will open during a special open house/demo session from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012, at SWECC, 6521 Wornall Road, Kansas City, Mo. Visitors will be treated to a 25-minute demonstration of the theatre, free refreshments, and pre-show entertainment. The event is free and open to the general public.

NOTE: A special Media Debut will be at 3:15 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, 2012, at SWECC, 6521 Wornall Road, Kansas City, Mo.

The Kansas City Public Schools is dedicated to graduating students that are college, career, and workforce ready. This mission is supported by innovative classroom instruction, engaging programs, highly-qualified employees, and an engaged and well-informed community.
