What is the STARLab?

The Classic Starlab® System is a teaching aid geared toward astronomy. In brief, it is composed of a dome made out of opaque vinyl, and a projector, which displays images on the inside of the dome. The projector produces bright light, which is fully adjustable by the user. The images are produced using Starlab® cylinders, which are made out of film. The film used is entirely opaque, except for the portions where the images are. In this way, all the light from the projector is blocked except what is needed to create images. A major advantage of the film is that it affords nearly infinite contrast ratios.

Reservation Information:

The Starlab will need a large room with a high ceiling such as cafeteria, gym, library, etc. with access to electricity for set-up.  It will be the responsibility of the campus staff to ensure space is available prior to reservation. Campus staff may reserve the Starlab for up to a one week duration.  Please reserve ONE WEEK prior to delivery date to allow for processing of request. It will be the responsibility of the campus to pick-up the Starlab from a location provided by the Director.  Due to the size of the boxes and bags for each Starlab, it is recommended that a pick-up truck or large SUV be used to transport the Starlab.  It will be the responsibility of the campus staff to facilitate the Starlab. 

***At this time due to health protocols, we are not accepting reservations for the Starlab.***
