Star Lab - Visit to School - Year 3 Students


This term, Year 3 students are learning about the ‘Spinning Earth’ in Science.  This involves learning about the effect of Earth's rotation on its axis in relation to the position of the sun.  Students will consider how everyday observations including day and night, sunrise and sunset, and shadows occur because of the Earth's rotation.  To complement these studies, we are organising a visit from ‘Starlab Education.’

The Starlab Planetarium is a giant silver dome that simulates the night sky of our Southern Hemisphere. Inside, students can discover more about space and our solar system through the use of visual projections, demonstrations and multimedia. This is an interactive experience enabling the students to participate by asking questions and making observations about space.

Year 3 classes will visit the Starlab Dome on Thursday 7 March with each class having an hour session within the dome.

The cost for each student is $8.75

Payment and Online Permission must be finalised by Friday 1 March.  This is to enable the office to produce accurate records of students attending for class teachers.
