Home Study Links – Astronomy & Space

We find ourselves in very difficult times.
As a result of this I can not currently visit schools to entertain, amaze and educate children.
All schools are now sadly closed for the foreseeable future.

If you are looking for some information about the current covid-19 situation, there are some very useful links on this local Web page:
https://www.tackleyvillage.co.uk/wp/covid-19-information-and-resources


To try and turn this into a positive, I now have time to collect and post links to some online resources that children (and most adults) may visit to learn all about our amazing universe and space missions.

This list will be continuously updated as I find new activities for you all.
If you know of any Web pages that ought to be included, please let me know.
