South Carolina State Museum: Distance Learning & Observatory Outreach



The Boeing Observatory at the South Carolina State Museum offers two unique programs that brings our observatory to your classroom!


Distance Learning

The museum offers FREE standards-based astronomy distance learning programs. During a distance learning experience, an astronomy educator will interact (virtually) with your students, show a live image of the Sun from our telescope, and answer students’ space questions. Evening distance learning experiences can be arranged by special request. To schedule, e-mail and observatory staff will coordinate a time that works with your schedule.


Observatory Outreach*

The museum also offers standards-based astronomy outreach programs for both daytime classroom visits and evening events like Family Nights and Science Nights. We can send telescopes, hands-on activities, and trained astronomers directly to your school for FREE! To schedule this experience, e-mail

*Please note that observatory outreach is limited to certain SC schools based on grant objectives. The South Carolina State Museum reserves the right to prioritize observatory outreach scheduling based on grant goals.
