STARLAB® is popular among students, as it provides a portable planetarium that brings the magic of the night sky to their school. With a variety of lessons developed to enhance classroom learning, students step through the STARLAB portal to experience lessons that connect them to the greater universe.
Through hands-on experiences, students become active participants in learning and applying classroom concepts. STARLAB lessons are appropriate for grades K-12 and include, but are not limited to, astronomy, the solar system, moon phases, mythology, constellations, geography, plate tectonics, bird migration and weather.
The STARLAB dome comes in two sizes: standard and giant. The standard dome can accommodate up to 25 students, while the giant dome can accommodate up to 50 students. It includes the projector and cylinder, as well as teaching content. An ESP teacher will come to your school to teach the lessons to your students unless your school has a teacher on staff who has been certified to use the STARLAB equipment. Contact ESP for more information on certification.
