Why This Course?
Are you enthralled by the sight of a star-studded sky?
The night sky holds wonders beyond our imagination; all we need to do is ‘look up’ at it.
The Astronomy Summer Course is an opportunity for your child to journey beyond our Planet Earth, observe and map celestial wonders, and most importantly, ask questions and seek answers about our expansive universe.
Give your kid a smart, exciting summer!
Message from Educator(s)
All about our instructors and educators
Know the Educator
"The night sky, for those of us who have looked up, is enthralling and humbling. For those who have not, it is time to be starstruck. Our ancestors’ unrelenting search for knowledge about the sky and the objects in it, has led to an astronomical revolution in our understanding of the universe. We humans, even today, continue to expand this search, at an ever increasing rate.
We will explore the hidden treasures in night sky together, journey through the stars and planets to know them, build tools to observe and study them and, of course, do a lot of SCIENCE! Join us on this 10-day online course, from across latitudes and longitudes, to journey into the cosmos! Earthlings, be prepared to be a Space Pirate!"
What parents had to say about our previous programs
Travelling from Chennai to Coimbatore for the Space science camp proved to be effacious for the insights she gained in both the camps.. I would say mentors possesess phenomenal knowledge both subject wise and delivering it to the kid of age 8 years , keeping them spell bound throughout was remarkable. I appreciate Obuli for the time he takes following the session to provide additional feedback. Important pointer which I felt so relevant about their workshop was that the team had a well planned structure with respect to their curriculum . Each and every hour in 5 days camp were well planned and executed..Will be back next year!!
Mango Education is a wonderful venture. My son just loves his time there. Obuli and Arumugam are really passionate about Science and teaching kids. Be it their crash course or their star gazing night or their latest scientist interaction programme, it's all very innovative and interesting for the kids and parents.
Obuli Chandran really ur bunch of Young Astronomers batch is proving awesome. They all r superb. Hats off to u to give them this much knowledge in a span of 6 months. Tku again Obuli Chandran and mango education for this wonderful opportunity with Mithun Meenakshi Mohan.

Moments from previous Astronomy programs
Explore the activities from our previous sessions
I buy kits and toys, but it ends up in the collection and my kids don't learn. Will it really work?
The Astronomy kit is a complement to the online course and not a collection set. The materials have been handpicked keeping in mind of the learner, The kit also contains tools that will slowly help them to learn by themselves.
Is the course completely online?
Absolutely not. We maintain the right balance of online and offline and have a lot of activity-based learning included in the course.
How does online course work? Can someone actually learn online?
The online course is not a pure video lessons based course. We also believe that Technology cannot replace the Educator.We are using internet as a tool to enable more interaction with Educator/Expert.
Can kids learn by themselves through just webinar and kit? Step by Step instruction and webinars.
The activites and kits are designed keeping in mind of this, there will be step by step instructions given and lots of Q&A facilitation. Just the webinar or kit wont enable kids to learn, we are trying to create an ideal environment in which kids can learn.
Why learn Astronomy from you guys? My child has already learnt about stars, planets, big bang theory through youtube and books.
We believe learning Astronomy through experience and like minded peers. Other than the Educator interaction, kids get to meet and discuss with like minded Space lovers across India.
What if my child gets distracted in the middle? - Engagement through webinars and classroom
Our Webinars and forums enable children to stay connected.
