Kids in Orbit

8-Week Online Advanced Kids Astronomy Course

We are delighted to announce the launch of our unique and interactive 8-week online advanced astronomy course for kids between the ages of 8-12. The course is broadcast live via webinar, every Saturday for 8 weeks, straight to your home computer or tablet!

Give the gift of the universe to your child. We believe that for some minds, it may mean the world.

The 8-week course


The What

The beauty of webinar courses are that they are live and accessible from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world! You will not be required to download anything – each week you will be provided with a link and a password to access the webinar session. Click, and you are in class! 

The Where

Say good bye to traffic and travelling – you can experience a full live course right from the comfort of your own home computer or tablet! 


The When

Every Saturday at 12:00 CET for 8 weeks we will connect online via webinar for a 60 minute, live online session.

What can you expect?

Each of the 8 exciting sessions will include…

The Lesson

We will kick off each live broadcast by discussing an exciting astronomy topic. Our aim is to simplify complex physics and bring the cosmos down to Earth for all kids to understand.

Space News for Kids

There are many space related news websites available for adults but they are written too intricately for kids to understand. We offer a LIVE space news segment just for kids, bursting with new space missions, the latest discoveries and upcoming rocket launches!

Space Calendar - The Sky this Week

The skies are forever changing – but luckily you have us to guide you! We will tell you which planets are visible in the sky each week and announce any exciting alignments, comets or meteor showers coming your way!

Live Quiz

Exciting quizzes will be held during each broadcast whereby each child will receive a multiple choice quiz right on their screen! Once all answers are in, we will announce the correct answers to the audience!


Ask the Astronomer

We understand that your kids must have loads of questions. Type their queries into the question section during our live broadcast and we will do our best to answer as many as we can during the Q&A segment of the show.

Extra treats…

Telescopes, Educational Toys and Gadgets

We will sporadically be recommending our favourite educational toys/gadgets and the best rated telescopes for kids or the whole family. Please visit The Space Kiosk for more information.

Questions between Classes

We know your mini astronaut might have more questions than we can answer during our live sessions, so we invite you to email us any additional questions he/she might have throughout the course and we will get back to you with an answer to share with your young one.

Certificate of Completion

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

Galaxies are ancient beasts with incredible stories to tell. We delve into the billion-year-old lifespan and see how they were formed and how they have changed over time.
