The Classes

6 Live & Interactive Video Chat Classes – all from the comfort of your own home.

1. The Big Bang

Where did it all begin? We zoom back billions of years to take a peak at the birth of our Universe and how it evolved over time.

2. The Solar System

We delve into the wonders of our cosmic neighbourhood and all its inhabitants. We explore the true scale of the planets and compare them to each other and our Sun!

3. Planets

We analyse the exciting secrets of the planets in our Solar System and work on understanding their true distances from our Sun – you’re guaranteed to be surprised!

4. Moons

Our moon is only one of over 200 moons orbiting the 8 planets! In many cases, these moon worlds are even more fascinating than their planet parents!

5. Stars

How are stars formed and how do the lives of different stars end? We explore the largest star in the known Universe and compare it to our Sun!

6. Galaxies

We shall explore the wonders of our own Milky Way galaxy and that of Andromeda, our closest neighbour. We’ll discover the various types of galaxies and how they formed over billions of years.

Certificate of Completion

On completion of our Kids in Orbit course, your little astronaut will receive an official Digital Certificate of Achievement to proudly mark his/her accomplishment.
