Student-led Space Explorers Club
High school students form and manage a school district-wide club as an independent study project to engage all students, teachers and parents in your community. It is like a school newspaper led by students and maintained from year to year under the supervision of a teacher/administrator. Slooh will mentor club leaders with younger students in apprenticeship roles as elementary and middle school representatives.
With Slooh’s district license, all students, teachers and parents have access including:
Live Star Parties featuring amazing celestial events
Independent study programs in citizen science, careers in space and science communications
Classroom research projects and science fair poster creation
Summer school offered directly to students on Slooh
Slooh is much more than online observatories. It is patented technology delivering the cosmos live and in full color. It is a curation of the 1,000 most wondrous stars, planets, nebulae, galaxies, comets and asteroids with their stories passed down since antiquity. It is a telescope reservation system that makes shared control with a global community more fun, social and educational, with advanced control for deeper investigation.
Launching in Summer 2023, Slooh's new Australian observatory will extend Slooh's live coverage to 24 hours per day. The observatory, located a stone's throw from the world-class Siding Spring Observatory, will house a new research-grade Half Meter telescope.
Slooh’s southern hemisphere observatory, in partnership with the Catholic University, features three telescopes offering complete coverage of the rich southern skies.
Slooh is your interface to space
Canary Islands Observatory
Slooh’s flagship observatory features six telescopes and is situated at 9,000 feet at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands, home to the largest optical telescope in the world. The time zone shift makes daytime astronomy possible in the United States.
