With Your Support, We can Provide Every Student Equal Access to the Universe.
Space Exploration For All
At Slooh, we are dedicated to making real-world, real-time space exploration accessible for every student.
We have launched a movement where teaching and learning about The Universe and its Stars and The Earth's Place in the Universe is easy, engaging, and affordable for all.
80% of Earth's population living in cities cannot see the stars. Millions of kids can’t see the night sky from light polluted locations.
Funding limitations result in few schools that teach astronomy or have access to observatories. Most teachers are not trained in astronomy
Low-income students have much less access to STEM learning than higher-income peers.
Significantly fewer hands-on science activities, access to science labs and materials, opportunities to take computer science classes, and teachers with sufficient math teaching resources
How Slooh Responds
Our Mission is to rebuild our collective connection to the night sky.
Slooh is a scalable platform that teaches people how to explore space via remote control of a network of online telescopes — a turn-key virtual classroom with an integrated curriculum for 4th grade to college, teacher professional development and adult education.
Education is becoming more digitized. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of e-learning.
The new space race is fuelling public interest in space exploration.
There is growing recognition of the urgent need for investment in K-12 STEM education and teacher professional development.
How We Are Addressing These Challenges
Slooh Has Democratized Access To Space
Slooh pioneered social astronomy and has formed
a global community sharing telescopes and knowledge.
From backyard telescopes to networked
15 robotic online telescopes including observatories in the Canary Islands and Chile
18 hours of live feeds per day with 800 daily “Missions” to space
From textbooks to experiential learning
Highly curated exploration experience with learning activities
Gamified, asynchronous STEAM curriculum from elementary to college
From a solitary experience to a social one
Live Star Parties syndicated to the media and attracts large audiences
Community leaders act as guides and moderators
University of Sharjah Partnership
Free for all Emirati students
Building observatory in UAE, translating Slooh into Arabic
West Sound STEM Network Partnership
Expanding to 250 teachers/10,000 students by 2022
One of many regional STEM alliances
College of the Canyons
Professor won Astronomy Teacher of the Year award using Slooh
No other nonprofit or non-governmental organization provides an interface to space for schools and after-school programs where students actually control remote telescopes to explore space.
Slooh’s asynchronous online education program prepares thousands of students for jobs in the growing space industry and other STEM fields.
