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.
We use industry-standard SSL to ensure that student data is encrypted and transmitted securely from end to end. We make every effort to comply with:
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Family Educations Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
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
learn from industry professionals to develop skills for the space workforce
Astronomy is the gateway science
86% of students say Slooh has increased their interest in science.
Students who study space are more likely to pursue a STEM career.
Space exploration inspires learning in science, math, literacy, and art.
Astronomy is the oldest science and of fundamental interest to all humans.
Any teacher, even those without a background in science or astronomy, can easily lead space investigations with Slooh’s integrated support. We equip teachers with the knowledge and confidence to facilitate space exploration with learners of all ages.
With a mix of articles and videos, your team will find the resources they need to master the platform independently.

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.

Former State Superintendent of Public Education, Ohio
“Slooh brings the wonder, excitement, and dreams children associate with space exploration and the cosmos directly into every classroom.”
Dr. David Goldblatt
Former Superintendent of Saddle River School District, NJ
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
