Workshop Grad to Oversee Construction of Science Complex

A graduate of Monolithic’s five-day workshop is involved in an ambitious project to build a 6,000-square-foot Monolithic Dome science complex in Oregon. Ashleigh Wolf attended one of the Monolithic Dome Institute’s workshops along with a small team from the Department of Science and Engineering for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

Now, thanks in part to a grant from the Department of Energy, Wolf is the co-manager of a project to build a three-floor science complex that will include a university-style laboratory, a conference room and perhaps even a small observatory.

“Once you take the class, you have the ability to go out and build the dome yourself,” Wolf told The East Oregonian newspaper. “I wanted to come home and build my own dome.”

Construction on the Monolithic Dome is set to begin immediately, with completion projected for February 2010. Click here to read more about the project.
