Astronomy For Kids

I often get questions about online astronomy content for children. The latest increase in home-schooling also increased the number of requests for this type of material.

I have here gathered some online astronomy resources for children (and curious adults) of 3 years and up in the attempt to create a space where all this information is gathered.

Resources are not all gathered by me, many are tips from physicist and researcher Magdalena Kersting as well as the highly valued scicomm-community on Twitter.

Feel free to explore, use, click and learn.
