Frequently Asked Questions

What schools will you travel to? We will bring our starship portable planetarium to schools all across Northeast Kansas. This experience is best for children in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.

How many people fit in the planetarium? Up to 25 children will fit inside our starship.

 

How long is each session? Each session lasts an average of 45 minutes. It takes us about 45 minutes to setup the starship and 30 minutes to tear it down. 

 

What kind of room does it need to be setup in?  To set up our starship, we need at least 25 x 25 feet of space. It is 7 feet tall. We will need access to one electrical outlet. We recommend having the starship in a multi-purpose room or gymnasium. 

 

Is it handicapped accessible? Yes, it is handicap accessible.

 

Is this a Starlab® or Go-Dome®? The Wonder Workshop built our own portable planetarium with the help of Dr. Larry Weaver and Laura Downing. It is similar to Starlab® and Go-Dome® but is not one of those products.
