Our next 6-week beginner astronomy course for kids between the ages of 8-11 is set to launch! The course will include 16 hours of cosmic excitement – 6 interactive 2 hour classes, 3 online and live space-news sessions and a private telescope observation night alongside astronomers from the University of Malta.
Give the gift of the universe to your child. We believe that for some minds, it may mean the world.
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.
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!
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!
Our moon is only one of about 175 moons orbiting the 8 planets! In many cases, these moon worlds are even more fascinating than their planet parents!
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!
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.
