Program Description

Starlab, a partnership with Capital Region BOCES, is an inflatable portable planetarium that allows students to learn about the night sky in a unique and interactive way. Programs available for grades K-12.

Ask the Astronomer:
Do your students have tough astronomy questions that you don’t have the background knowledge to answer? Would you like your students to have the opportunity to chat with a professional astronomer? We’ve got you covered! The Dudley Observatory now offers Ask the Astronomer sessions with Dr. Valerie Rapson. In these 45min Q&A sessions, Dr. Rapson will happily answer any questions about the solar system, stars, galaxies, black holes, aliens, or whatever your students think of. Sessions can be conducted in person or via Skype and are available for any grade K-12.

Hands-on Classes:
Meteorite Meteor-Wrong (3rd-8th grade)
Learn about meteorites and how they help astronomers study the formation and interiors of the planets in our solar system. Students will explore different rock samples to determine which are real meteorite samples and which are rocks from Earth.
