Independent Study Programs
Slooh facilitates a variety of independent study programs in citizen science, workforce development, and science communications. Among many options, students can:
create a portfolio of their work and learn to publish articles in science journals.
form and manage an astronomy club to engage all students, teachers, and parents in your community.
create a poster for your science fair and Slooh's Astronomy Fair competition
learn to host live and recorded celestial Star Parties

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.

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
