Overview
The Ho Tung Visualization Laboratory (or "Vis Lab" as we lovingly call it) is a digital planetarium that immerses its audience members in stunning visualizations of all subject matters. From shrinking to a molecular level to travel through cellular structures, to flying through the cosmos, we use the interdisciplinary nature of the dome to bring science to life in an exciting, modern way. The Vis Lab connects people to concepts and each other. Whether it is introducing school groups to the cosmos for the first time, community members to Colgate students, or research teams to citizen scientists, the Vis Lab has fostered meaningful connections for over a decade. We aim to make science accessible to those of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. By hosting outreach events for local schools and the community, the Vis Lab seeks to inspire curiosity in everyone. Armed with Digistar 7 from Evans & Sutherland, the lab continues to be on the cutting edge of immersive technology.
