If you are ready to book, fill out the Starlab Inquiry Form (opens in a new window). The form has all the information we need to start your booking. If you need more details, read below for answers to frequently asked questions.

Starlab Is Big!

Starlab is a large dome that can be easily set up in a school gym or drama room – any space with a high ceiling. Starlab requires a large (7 x 7 x 4 metre or 23 x 23 x 12.5 feet), clean, indoor area with access to two 110 volt outlets. If the area is not suitable for setting up Starlab, the HR MacMillan Space Centre staff will request a more suitable environment. If Starlab requires cleaning because of the space provided, a cleaning fee will be charged.

We'll Fit Your Schedule
