See what is said about our app used in classes:
"My students felt like they experienced the solar system as they had read in Lucy and Stephen Hawking's book "George's Secret Key to the Universe". In that book a powerful computer can open a portal to show young George the planets. That is precisely what my classroom of children will pretend if we can manipulate Solar Walk on our large interactive screen!"
— Greg Kroening, Burroughs Community School
"I used this app recently when teaching Year 9 BTEC students about the composition of the Solar System. Students were engaged from the start as I had chosen to project the animation of the solar system. I was pleased and amazed by the engagement of the students throughout the lessons as this app made the lesson more accessible to all students."
— Smartlearning Teacher of Science at Priority Community School Weston Super Mare.
"Solar Walk gives your students a realistic look at the Solar System. Let your students take a virtual field trip to the planet of their choice to explore and report back to the class about. Students can become astronauts flying to the planet of choice, getting an in-depth look at the planet, and exploring each of the planets moons."
