Thanks to the Georgia Youth Science and Technology Center (GYSTC), our little Bears were treated to a tour of the stars in the StarLab Planetarium. Starlab, a mobile planetarium, affords us the opportunity to organize in-house field trips that provide interactive learning experiences for our students. The StarLab replicates the night sky and allows our students to learn about the stars and constellations along with their movements across the sky during different seasons. This lesson was led by Erin Youman and Dean Laskey of GYSTC.
