States of Matter

Education Modules No Comments

Arrr Matey’s!  What do we have here??  Is it a solid?  A liquid? A gas?  Hmm…Does it “Matter”?  It most certainly does!  We are talking about GOLD!  So put on your lab coat and come investigate matter with us!  SlicedTomato is excited to introduce our newest FullDome educational module:  States of Matter!

Immerse your audience in this live action FullDome experience.  States of Matter comes complete with a review section to fully engage your audience, created specifically with teachers and students in mind.

Get more than a “sneak peek” – be sure to preview the entire show!

States of Matter is available for download for only $995.00 USD – what a SOLID deal!  The download form is available to submit below.



    1. Science: As always, the science had to be right.  In order to make this happen, we worked closely with Roper Mountain Science Center in developing the script and tying it to the National Science Standards.
    2. Why are our live action FullDome shows engaging and unforgettable?  Because of just that – the live action images and shows. We believe that once you see a live action FullDome show, you will never forget it.
    3. “This is Science People!”  We love Field Trips!   Field trips to the Science Center are even more fun with our live action FullDome shows!



  • The Show:  States of Matter – just long enough to introduce the topics but not too long for our students (our goal was to introduce the science and get students excited – then the rest is covered in class!) States of Matter does its job in about 10 minutes.
  • Straight Play: A FullDome Show – just like you expect – video, music, beautiful images.
  • 50 year lease – play it at your facility as much as you want
  • Simplified pricing – no multiplication, no counting pixels – one low price for everyone – $995.00 USD
  • Projector ready – we will get it ready for you whenever possible.
    • We can slice our Dome Master into several projector-ready formats. We spend the time converting, you spend more time teaching.
  • Download option: SlicedTomato believes in the efficient, earth friendly, quicker way of delivery – and that is digital. We pay the download fee if you choose this option.

The Legacy of Michael Mocherman

FullDome, Planetarium No Comments

In Sarasota Florida, at Riverview High School, Jason Mocherman has inherited a legacy. For Jason, heading the Planetarium is not only a passion, but also an incredible opportunity started by his father more than twenty years ago. Growing up, Jason was constantly surrounded by science projects at home. Telescopes, instruments and experiments filled the house, and because of Michael Mocherman’s passion, Jason developed an affinity towards science at an early age. “My Dad has always loved teaching,” Jason remembers, “Nothing brought him greater joy.”

sarasota (1)Michael Mocherman began teaching science at Riverview High School in 1982. A few years later, he became science department chairman where he began to tirelessly build numerous science programs. His goal was to grow it into the best and most unique department it could ever be. Michael wanted the students to have as much access to science as they could so they could fulfill all their curiosities. His work at developing the department included creating radiation labs for the students, marine science labs, and then the planetarium. “The planetarium became my Dad’s pet project,” Jason says. “It was started by him, and perpetuated by him. It became his top priority.”
