  Universe in the Classroom activity book about the Las Cumbers Observatory robotic telescopes and astronomical objects aimed at primary school students aged between years. A core aspect of Universe in the Classroom is to help Welsh students (and their teachers) enjoy and explore the vast Universe using this robotic telescope network. A range of astronomy activities, guides and screencasts have been designed to support use of . The power of robotic telescopes to transform science education has been voiced by multiple sources, since the s. Since then, much technical progress has been made in robotic telescope. This cutting edge overview details the technology underpinning robotic observatories, critically discussing results obtained from extant robotic telescopes and those under development. Written by a wide range of international astronomers and engineers who also review the ways in which the uses of telescopes will progress into the next century.
