Royal Observatory Edinburgh Support for Home and Blended Learning

The Royal Observatory Edinburgh provides free online resources and live and pre-recorded group sessions to help schools and home-learners use space as an engaging context for learning across the curriculum.

While our site is closed, the Royal Observatory Edinburgh and our partners are supporting schools and learners through:

  • Home-learning videos with lock-down-friendly space activities for primary pupils: See Below
  • Live and pre-recorded workshops and Q&A sessions with astronomers via Zoom. By arrangement, email: vis@roe.ac.uk
  • The Deep Space Diary, a cross-curricular, student-led learning resource aligned with the upper primary curriculum: Deep Space Diary
  • The Research in Schools – At Home project, offering research experience supporting the secondary physics curriculum: Research in Schools
