Education has been a core aspect of Las Cumbres Observatory since it was founded in 2005. Our educational mission is to inspire learners of all ages, through the use of robotic telescopes, in the wonders of the universe.

We run two complementary programs that support this mission: the Global Sky Partners and our education Resources for astronomy.

global sky partners

The Global Sky Partners use our network of robotic telescopes in observing campaigns and open-ended science investigations.


Online and print resources explore the lifecycle of stars, types of astronomical objects, and telescopes.
