Kit Loan

Help your class explore the galaxy with our telescope kit loan, free to member schools, which includes a night sky telescope and a solar telescope with tripods, risk assessment and manufacturer’s instructions.

Space is an engaging topic for all ages and several schools have borrowed our telescopes to run evening stargazing sessions with parents, children and the local community. You don’t need to be an expert either – there are lots of free apps to download that allow you to point your phone at the night sky and view the constellations, planets and satellites (we like SkySafari, available on both Apple and Android, but there are plenty more to choose from).

The kit also includes a solar telescope, which can be used during the normal school day and enables children to safely look at the Sun.
