What Educators Are Saying
This is the coolest part to me...students can CONTROL professional-quality telescopes for what they want to capture!
Middle School Science Teacher | GA
My students are actively designing the process and truly authoring their learning experience, just as professional astronomers do. These tools already dominate the field of professional astronomy, so The Online Telescope allowed my astronomy classes to finally catch up to the field.
Christine Hirst Bernhardt
Slooh Teacher Advisory Board Chair
With the launch of the James Webb telescope, the idea of what and how we can see is important for my students to understand the various ways in which we look at the universe.
