Star Lab Provides Excitement in January

Star Lab DomeThe Star Lab mobile planetarium will make its annual visit to Royerton Elementary during the week of January 8 to January 12.

Many teachers take advantage of the opportunity to create lesson plans involving the lab.  Indeed, the sky is the limit during Star Lab week!

Second-grade teachers Kendra Clements and Terri Shaw are among those who utilize the Star Lab.

"The Star Lab is a great way to bring the night sky to the students," Clements said. "It provides an opportunity for the kids to experience constellations in a real setting."

Students are exposed to longitude, lattitude, continents, and weather.

Clements and Shaw noted that their second-graders "can hardly contain themselves with their excitement. It ends up being one of their favorite memories from elementary."
