In the past, the non-profit STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Center would use a mobile inflatable dome to bring astronomy to students, but that was cramped and impacted frequently by weather. This free-standing studio was renovated by David Wilkes Builders to enhance the experience of students attending summer camps. The new dome portion, which serves as a planetarium, was challenging to construct, requiring precision measurements. The numerous joints in the drywall required expert skill to tape and float for the finish out.
