Registration is open for Fall 2022!
Developed in consultation with educators to meet fifth-grade science standards, the Griffith Observatory Online School Program is a series of modules (described below) each composed of live, recorded, and animated elements as well as live Q&A opportunities. The modules are each hosted and presented live by engaging Observatory Museum Guides and Telescope Demonstrators.
Developed by necessity due to the pandemic, our Online School Program enables students to have a meaningful, virtual Observatory experience. As with our signature in-person school program, the Online School Program is free to students and schools. The online format removes transportation and geographic barriers to participation and enables the program to serve a much broader audience of students. In the 2021-22 school year, the program provided 118,000 student interactions with 92 percent of participating schools being Title 1 eligible. Schools with limited access to science outreach initiatives are especially encouraged to register.
The Observatory’s fifth-grade Online School Program is funded by Griffith Observatory Foundation. By making a donation today, you help the Foundation support Griffith Observatory’s mission of inspiring everyone to observe, ponder, and understand the sky.
