....to the Comet Chasers Project!
This project aims to use the 'Wow' factor of Space, particularly comets, to inspire children in their learning across the curriculum. It links schools with professional and amateur astronomers, to enable them to use research grade telescopes around the world and be actively involved in astronomical research.
This page is a (work in progress) portal for access to those resources developed as part of the initial phase of the Comet Chasers project which was administered by Techniquest with funding from an STFC SPARKS Award. Access to the telescope facilities in the Las Cumbres Observatory network is provided through the support of the Faulkes Telescope Project.
The resources currently available are designed for Primary School children in Years 5 and 6.
