Use Starlab to make science come alive for your students
November 16 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Starlab is an inflatable dome on which you can project vivid images of the night sky, ancient mythological characters, our solar system and galaxy, Earth’s weather patterns and geological features, or the biological cell. Starlab is easily transportable and fits into a small car. It can be set up in 15 minutes and accommodates up to 30 students. The Starlab dome requires a clean floor space of 20 x 22 feet and a 12-foot-high ceiling.
Starlab allows students to make observations, collect and analyze data, and construct explanations for natural phenomena in astronomy, earth science, and biology. Astronomical phenomena such as the daily and yearly motions of the sun, moon, planets, stars, and constellations are easily observed with Starlab.
The Starlab Training will be held in-person at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg and will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and end by 4 pm. The training fee is $150. Teachers who complete the training are eligible to rent Starlab for a fee of $400/week ($300/week between June 1 and Dec. 1).
This Starlab Training is supported by a grant from the New Jersey Space Grant Consortium.
