ESA for kids

Now that the Eddington Society and Kendal Museum have launched an astronomy for kids (aged 9-16) group, everyone seems to be trying to get in on the act. The European Space Agency for example. They now have an Our Universe section, sort of like when Tony Hart displayed all the bits of artwork sent in to him. They define a theme and encourage people under the age of 14 to send in works to be displayed.

  1. Take a virtual field trip with MEET ME AT THE CORNER, (www.meetmeatthecorner) to Palomar Observatory for National Astronomy Day.

    Join our young host as he learns about the Observatory and the Hubble Telescope.
    This site offers links to fun websites including StarChild, NASA for Kids, Astronomy for kids and a link to The Galileoscope™ a high-quality, low-cost telescope kit developed for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 by a team of leading astronomers, optical engineers, and science educators. No matter where you live, with this easy-to-assemble, 50-mm (2-inch) diameter, 25- to 50-power achromatic refractor, you can see the celestial wonders that Galileo Galilei first glimpsed 400 years ago and that still delight stargazers today.

    MEET ME AT THE CORNER uploads free videos every two weeks. A great site for kids.
