The Gift of Learning

Fernbank’s immersive Giant Screen Theater offers state-of-the-art digital laser projection with 2D and 3D capabilities, which was made possible by a generous gift from local entrepreneur, Dante Stephensen, a lifelong advocate of learning, travel and natural history. Stephensen was committed to educating youth for generations to come with awe-inspiring movies that encourage exploration, discovery and the protection of our shared global home.
