As part of our school system’s membership in the Oconee River GYSTC (Georgia Youth Science & Technology Center), we have access to a smorgasbord of professional development, no-cost equipment rentals, and educational support.  Upcoming opportunities include sessions on implementing Sphero Robotics in your classroom, and how to properly use and care for the STARLAB portable planetarium, which GYSTC is more than happy to loan to your school.

Don’t think a portable planetarium has anything to do with your curriculum? Well, GYSTYC also has a variety of STARLAB cylinders that you can use to expand the versatility of the STARLAB.  These cylinders transform the inside of the planetarium from constellations of the night sky, to the inside of biological cells, to vivid representations of mythological creatures.  To see exactly what cylinders GYSTC has available and the wide range of curriculum connections possible, visit their STARLAB page.

Our partners at Oconee River GYSTC are at your service.  Please don’t miss out on this valuable resource.  Take a look at what’s on the current menu.
