About Us

the why


Kids in Orbit has been lovingly nurtured from concept to reality over many years. We have an astronomical passion for both space science and education, which we cannot wait to share with a select few. We believe that there is a huge void (a black hole, even) in the web where it comes to kids astronomy and our mission is to create a place which young star gazers can call home.  For the few bright eyed kids who look up and wonder – it may mean the world.
