          Project Goal

          Teach children about astronomy and technology

          Location: United States

          "Telescopes in Education has rejuvenated an ancient science, bringing what was once the prerogative of a handful of astronomers to school children in the remote hills of Japan, Poland and elsewhere."

          Twelve years ago, retired sailor Gilbert Clark started giving children a healthy dose of virtual reality by letting them look at the Milky Way and beyond through mammoth, multimillion-dollar telescopes from their computers. Since being selected as a Rolex Laureate in 1996, his Telescopes in Education (TIE) programme has soared skywards, becoming an immensely valuable part of the curriculum at hundreds of schools in many countries.
