Summer STEM for Looking at the Skies with Slooh
Show Notes

Looking at the skies just got the kind of million dollar makeover we all dream of! Listeners of all types....teachers, parents, and ANYONE on this PLANET, get ready for the kind of space tech at your fingertips we thought was CLASSIFIED!!

Meet Mike from Slooh! Michael Paolucci is an internet entrepreneur and a pioneer of online advertising, as well as online video editing, online labor marketplaces, and social astronomy. Michael is currently the founder and CEO of Slooh, a digital education platform teaching students to explore space via a network of online telescopes. He holds a patent for live astronomy.

Funded in part by a National Science Foundation grant, Slooh brings the wonders of space exploration to upper elementary through post-secondary students around the world with The Online Telescope for Teachers. For almost 20 years, the company has provided the ability to view space phenomena, capture observational data, and engage in gamified learning through its patented user-controlled network of online telescopes in the Canary Islands and Chile. The company additionally provides robust professional development to help educators drive student learning. 

Slooh also recently announced The Online Telescope for Families which enables families to explore, capture, and analyze more than 1,000 real-world space objects and events using professional-grade technology together – all from the comfort of their homes.

I literally haven't seen anything like this and said, "YES!" I took my own photographs of the crescent moon last week! Yep, that's right my own images that are stored on the Slooh Library in my dashboard. Don't walk... RUN to Slooh and get started! Find the link below:
