STARLAB® is the first truly portable planetarium. Invented in 1977 by Philip Sadler and his class of middle school students in Lincoln, Massachusetts, today STARLAB® is the most widely used planetarium in the world.
Input from teachers, curriculum developers and school administrators have helped to guide and influence the development of STARLAB®, its supporting materials and the unique ways it has come to be used in schools and museums around the world.
STARLAB® has become a part of many peoples’ lives. Along the way, it has been adopted by many different groups:
- school systems to use throughout their districts
- science museums for outreach activities
- individual schools, both public and private
- camps and scouting groups
