Idea of the Month – The Geo Dome

Geo Dome – Auraria Event Center

Geo Dome pictured above, was designed by Balloons by Absolute Value for the University of Colorado Denver. Their event was held at the Auraria Event Center in the foyer area.

The foyer is a multi-purpose area that is long and narrow with very high ceilings. The event was tailored for new students who leaned to mathematics and sciences.

The balloon decor was to serve two purposes. One was to have great visibility, lots of eye candy if you will and the focal point of the event.

The other purpose was to be interactive with the student guests of the university. Each student was given a questionnaire that was about the Geo Dome and other mathematic questions.

It was a big hit by everyone there, most were amazed that the Geo Dome was created only with balloons and set-up in such a short period of time.

I will have to be honest with you, I didn’t do so well in answering the questionnaire. The only thing I did real well in, was the Geo Dome itself, the mathematics portion was extremely hard for a 64 year old guy………smiling sheepishly.
