StarLab Portable Planetarium Workshop

StarLab is an engaging and fun way to introduce Astronomy! Did you know you can also make other topics come alive when they are projected on the inside of the StarLab dome? Some of the favorite cylinders are the Biological Cell, Plate Tectonics, Greek Mythology, Ocean Currents, and the Moon. K-12 educators will practice unpacking and setting up the StarLab equipment, learn the basics of operating the StarLab projector, develop their own planetarium show, practice taking down and packing up the StarLab equipment, and explore other ways to introduce students to the wonders of the night sky.
