StarLab is a portable, inflatable planetarium that can bring the wonder of the night sky indoors. A naturalist takes you on a guided tour of the current night sky which is projected on the inside of the dome. Programs can help teachers meet some Michigan Science Benchmarks. StarLab:
- requires a quiet, clean indoor area with electricity.
- must be indoors in a room 23’ x 23’ and 11’ high.
- can accommodate up to 30 people per presentation.
Typical presentations are 45 minutes in length, with change time needed between programs. Presentations cannot be made for preschool and kindergarten students. All groups require adult supervision.
At your site: $200 for the first presentation; $75 for additional presentations plus out of county fee, if applicable; travel limited.
At the Nature Center: $100 for the first presentation; $75 for additional presentations plus park entry fees.
Cancellations of less than seven days prior to a scheduled StarLab appointment are subject to a $25 cancellation fee. After hours/evening requests are charged an additional $50 service fee.
