Home Learning

Support for Home and Blended Learning

The Royal Observatory Edinburgh provides free online resources and live and pre-recorded group sessions to help schools and home-learners use space as an engaging context for learning across the curriculum.


We are supporting schools and learners with our partners through:

Home-learning videos with lock-down-friendly space activities for primary pupils
• The Deep Space Diary, a cross-curricular, student-led learning resource aligned with the upper primary curriculum: Deep Space Diary
• The Research in Schools – At Home project, offering research experience supporting the secondary physics curriculum: Research in Schools
