About Us

The Faulkes Telescope Project is an education partner of Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network (LCOGTN).

Our aim is to provide free access to robotic telescopes and a fully supported education programme to encourage teachers and students to engage in research-based science education.

Access to our resources and those of our partners is provided at no charge to teachers and students.

Robotic Telescopes

LCOGTN operates a network of research class robotic telescopes. Currently there are two telescopes, one in Hawaii and the other in Australia. These telescopes are available to teachers for them to use as part of their curricular or extra-curricular activities and are fully supported by a range of educational materials and a team of educators and professional astronomers.

As part of the University of South Wales, we are also a partner of the Go-Lab project which will provide access to online and remote laboratories for science education throughout the European Union. It will offer students the opportunity to perform their own investigations and experiments utilising a web-based pedagogic community.

Project
(Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School) opens up
remote science laboratories and their online models (online labs) for
the large-scale use in education. Its technical framework – the Go-Lab
Portal - offers students the opportunity to perform personalized
scientific experiments with online labs, whereas teachers may enrich
their classroom activities with demonstrations and disseminate best
practices in a web-based pedagogic community. - See more at:
