Faulkes Telescope Project
The Faulkes Telescope Project aims to provide schools with access, via the Internet, to research class optical telescopes enabling schoolchildren to make astronomical observations direct from the classroom.
A key activity of the outreach programme is to establish a regional Faulkes Telescope Centre for which we have already secured, as a gift, the required computing resources from Sun Microsystems worth around £30,000. The Physics Department of the University of Durham is providing space, which will become the Faulkes classroom. In addition, the outreach project is a fully paid up member of the National Schools Observatory programme.
