Slooh's Online Telescope |
Slooh’s learning progression for school districts
Students learn to explore space like professional astronomers via computer interface. With hands-on, age-appropriate experiential learning, Slooh takes students beyond simulation to collect and analyze their own data as they master a new, real-world environment.
Paths of Exploration
Space is a vast wilderness. Slooh is like a national park with trails and guides.

STANDARDS- ALIGNED LEARNING ACTIVITES
Lead your students into space and see how far they go.
Space and earth science deserve a place in school curricula. That’s why the White House recently announced support for space education to prepare the future workforce.
NEW SPACE INVESTMENT SINCE 2012
GROWTH COMPANIES WILL SUSTAIN FUTURE WORKFORCE
Biology is taught with microscopes and astronomy with telescopes. Although it hasn’t been practical for schools to set up their own telescopes, online telescopes make the study of space accessible for everyone.
Teachers require tools to investigate space phenomena.
Slooh enables students to collect and analyze data under different conditions to provide evidence to support claims they make about phenomena.
Slooh’s NGSS-aligned learning activities can fit any schedule or budget.

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
