MindBloom offers STARLAB planetarium programs to school groups throughout the Washington, DC area.  STARLAB is an innovative portable planetarium system that introduces students in grades Pre-K to high school to the scientific wonders of the night sky and beyond.  This interdisciplinary teaching lab touches on a myriad of astronomy and other themes, such as:


  • Cultural and Native Legends

  • The Milky Way
  • Star Clusters and Galaxies
  • Phases of the Moon
  • Starfields and Urban Night Sky
  • Earth Science and Plate Tectonics
  • Cell Biology
  • Ocean Currents
  • Celestial Voyages of Explorers

STARLAB can accommodate groups of up to 30 children and teachers total under the dome and requires a large and quiet area such as a gymnasium or cafeteria with a ceiling height of at least 11 feet and diameter of at least 20 feet.  At least one teacher must be in the lab at all times.

STARLAB group learning shows are 30 minutes in length and minimum numbers are required for show bookings.  Pricing for shows start at $150.00 per show.
