StarLab is a giant inflatable planetarium in which a Briar Bush Educator will project the night sky and animal constellations onto the inner dome.
To participate in StarLab, participants are required to walk through the inflated doors and sit on the ground to view the projections.
StarLab Viewing Experience for Ages 0-2
For children ages 0-2, only 15-minute viewing experiences are available within the 2-hours of programming. However, the planetarium is dimly lit and may be an intimidating experience for children ages 0-2, so the viewing experience may be less than 15-minutes. The viewing experiences do not include educational material; they are strictly viewing experiences.
StarLab Program for Ages 3+
For participants age 3+, the 2-hours of programming will be divided into four 30-minute sessions. Additional hours can be purchased. Each 30-minute session includes an orientation outside of the planetarium and a visual tour of the night sky in the planetarium filled with stories combining science and myth.
StarLab PLUS Program for Ages 3+
For participants age 3+, the 2-hours of programming will be divided into four 30-minute sessions. Additional hours can be purchased. StarLab PLUS will engage two groups at one time. The first group will participate in a 30-minute StarLab session which includes an orientation outside of the planetarium and a visual tour of the night sky in the planetarium filled with stories combining science and myth. The second group will participate in astronomy-related games and activities at the same time until it’s time to enter the StarLab. Then, the groups will switch.
