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.

Challenges

Light Pollution

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.

Resources

Funding limitations result in few schools that teach astronomy or have access to observatories. Most teachers are not trained in astronomy

Equity

Low-income students have much less access to STEM learning than higher-income peers.

Opportunities

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.
