FOR HOMESCHOOL: KINDERGARTEN AND UP

With powerful tools of exploration, students learn to explore the cosmos.

Slooh’s gamified learning activities inspire and prepare students for careers in space and related STEM fields. 

Satisfy Curiosity and Ignite Passion

With Slooh for Homeschool, students from kindergarten and up go beyond simulation to control a global network of online telescopes, complete standards-aligned learning progressions, build image collections, and create portfolios of exploration. 
Slooh is much more than online observatories. It is patented technology delivering the cosmos live and in full color. 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.
Australian Observatory
Launching in mid 2024, 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. 
Chile Observatory
Slooh’s southern hemisphere observatory, in partnership with the Catholic University, features three telescopes offering complete coverage of the rich southern skies. 
Slooh is their 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.
