Starlab Rentals

Our portable planetarium can bring the stars down to the Earth - and to your school!

Starlab is a portable planetarium made of fabric, which is inflated by a fan and capable of accommodating approximately 25 students. A star projector recreates the sky, including the Sun, Moon and Planet positions on the dome, for any time or place on earth. Starlab is compact enough to fit into a small car and is easily set up in 15 minutes. It requires a clean floor space of 20' x 22' and a 12' ceiling.

Any teacher who has attended an NJACE Starlab certification course (or can provide proof of certification) is eligible to rent a Starlab. Our Starlabs are available for rent for only $325 per week. The cost includes the dome, blower, various accessories and cylinders. Teachers must pick up the Starlab at RVCC on a Friday between 9:00am and 5:00pm. They must drop off the Starlab on a following Friday before 4:00 pm. Teachers may submit a request for their preferred pickup and drop-off times, and they will be contacted with information about whether those requested times are available.
