STARLAB can be used with students in kindergarten through college and with adults. "The sky is never the limit with STARLAB!"

slide5
What kind of room do I need to set Starlab up?

For the Standard-size dome you will need a 12.0 foot ceiling height in the center with no sharp objects (like sprinklers) coming in contact with the dome. The floor space should be about 25 feet on a side.

slide6
How do I get in? Do I have to crawl?

You enter through the larger of the two tubes connected to the dome. The kids love to crawl in but anyone can get in by merely bending over and walking through the entrance tunnel.

“Inside the dome, a cylinder projector is not only able to show us the night sky devoid of any light pollution, it can also take us on a journey from the South Pole to the Equator and on to the North Pole. We can see the sky as it looks right now in Maryland as well as at the far end of the Australian outback.”

Students Review!“I like STARLAB, it is fun and interesting. It is cool. It is like sitting in your backyard looking at the stars, but it’s better because you are closer up to the stars.”
