Astronomy news for children aged 8+
By sharing the latest astronomical news with young children as they happen, Space Scoop aims to change the way science is often perceived by youngsters as an outdated and dull subject within which every discovery has been made, and to inspire them to develop a curiosity and passion for learning that will last throughout their lives.
Space Scoop covers the topics of astronomy and earth science as they embody a unique combination of scientific and cultural aspects: Our awe-inspiring Universe captures the imagination of children, making it a great stepping-stone to introduce youngsters to science and technology, while the vastness and beauty of the Universe and our small, blue planet within it provides a special perspective that can help broaden the mind, stimulate a sense of global citizenship and tolerance, and encourage a respect for the planet.
