Activities & Research Projects • Classroom activities • Suggested activities – Moodle VLE • Activities & Research Projects • Classroom activities • Suggested activities – Moodle VLE • Schools run these or their own related projects, with little/no input from us • Research • Work with pro/am astronomers • Targets publicised through FT • Students act as data-gatherers • Astronomers analyse data and publish results

 • Research collaborations with professional and amateur astronomers (UK and international) • Engage • Research collaborations with professional and amateur astronomers (UK and international) • Engage students and teachers with real scientific research projects • Strong links with several research and science education projects (GTTP, GHOU, EUHOU, IASC etc. ) • Schools progress from “pretty pictures” to “real science” e. g. 2011 summer student – discovered 29 new asteroids, comet fragmentation event
