Give students a new view on how fun learning can be.

Imagine the possibilities of what a StarLab Planetarium can do for your school system. You can give students an intergalactic experience that brings science lessons to life and teachers a tool that gives them the confidence to keep students engaged. It’s time for an awesome way of learning.

 

Explore resources designed to ignite student engagement.

With the StarLab interactive experience as a learning tool, you can engage students with a wide range of lessons including science, geography and astronomy. All of our scientifically-accurate materials are designed and reviewed by teachers — with the specific needs of teachers like you in mind. Best of all, Starry Night and Layered Earth software meet current Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). You’ll have easy-to-follow manuals, hands-on activities, topic discussions, teacher guides and more to kick off an exciting school year.

 

STARRY NIGHT SMALL DOME

Starry Night is the sky at your fingertips. No other teaching software lets you explore the frontier of the night sky like this; and countless students have come to enjoy the flexibility and fun of navigating the stars with this amazing lesson plan. Even better? This incredible platform meets all current Next Generation Science Standards. With Starry Night inside the StarLab, you can project stunning and highly accurate astronomical simulations right inside your very own planetarium.

 

HOURS OF EXPLORATION INSIDE THE LAYERED EARTH

Layered Earth is a new, interactive geology curriculum from the makers of Starry Night Education.  Layered Earth integrates your Earth Science curriculum with the latest technology to prepare your students for the skills they’ll need in the 21st Century. In a dynamic environment, through step-by-step computer explorations, activities and resources, you’ll guide your students through a geological journey that will rock their world.  Enable your students to envision Earth as a whole system. Show them tectonic plate boundaries, mountain ranges, volcanoes, earthquakes, mineral resources and biomes. Dive into the Earth’s core, slice open a volcano or watch rocks transform. They’ll even witness the changing shapes of Earth’s major landmasses throughout history!  Manipulating models is an effective way to investigate scientific ideas, especially when dealing with things that are very slow, fast, large or small. With Layered Earth, you’ll give your students a virtual model of Earth that can be measured, manipulated and visualized, to build a deeper understanding of how the Earth system works.
