The planetarium came to Mills Pond Elementary school on Wednesday.

Western Suffolk BOCES’ Digital STARLAB— an inflatable, portable planetarium — greeted first graders inside the gymnasium.

The students excitedly entered the “giant inflatable bubble” and learned about stars, constellations and the moon. As time accelerated, students observed the projected images and how the view changes.

STARLAB is an exciting teaching aid, allowing educators to introduce their students to the beauty and wonders of the night sky as well as important scientific and environmental concepts.
