Online Resources

 

At the moment we realise that it is difficult for you to get out and about and enjoy your usual astronomy events with us. We have created a few free online resources and activities that you can use with your family and friends. From the Cosmic Quiz Live, The Telescope Live, Airbus Foundation Discovery Space and our fun Space Songs, we have something for everyone. To get frequent updates please subscribe to our newsletter.


Airbus Foundation Discovery Space

We are the youth partners of Airbus Foundation in Kenya and through this partnership we have reached 100 schools. Airbus Foundation Discovery Space is a project which encourages students between the ages of 12 to 18 to use Tinker CAD to design their own projects. There are various campaigns for this age group of kids and we are happy to offer online classes for students or teachers who are interested in participating in the upcoming challenges. 


Space Songs

We would like to engage our young audiences through STEAM education. The space songs we are creating are free and easy to share on your phones and on social media. The first edition, The Sun Song was created by our founders, a married couple, Chu and Suzi with their children in their home. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic it is difficult to welcome families and guests and therefore we hope that our audience will get entertained and learn about the Sun.  We intend to create many of these songs and teach kids about astronomy through song and dance.

The Cosmic Quiz

The Cosmic Quiz is a bi-weekly live online astronomy quiz for families and friends from all over the world. The quiz master is former International Planetarium President Dave Weinrich and our host is Martyn Wells from The Royal Observatory Edinburgh. To join in our next quiz please register for our newsletter and emailing list. 

Telescope Live

You can still enjoy a guided tour of the Kenyan night skies with our team of astronomers during this Covid-19 period through our Telescope Live events. The Super Moon Live event in April had about 200 guests who were able to see the Moon with us through our telescope broadcast through Zoom, as they also watched the Moon from their backyards – where possible!. We have more exciting events coming up including an annular eclipse on 21st June. To find out more please subscribe to our newsletter and emailing list.
