Slooh Raises Nearly $5M in Funding

Slooh, a Washington Depot, CT-based company which specializes in offering live online telescope feeds of the universe and an NGSS-aligned curriculum for school communities, raised nearly $5M in funding.

The round saw participation from Connecticut Innovations, Michael Paolucci, and family offices dedicated to space education.

Led by Michael Paolucci, Slooh provides the ability to view space phenomena, capture observational data, and engage in gamified learning through its patented user-controlled network of online telescopes and standards-aligned curriculum for upper elementary through post-secondary students around the world.

This news follows the recent launch of a next-generation online learning platform which allows students to complete Quest learning activities. This includes the ability for them to create custom posters depicting what they discovered using Slooh’s fully autonomous online telescopes. With the platform, students are also able to participate in independent study programs – focused on citizen science, science communications, and workforce development. 

For educators, the new platform features a dashboard and new support resources. This includes on-demand training and onboarding videos, situational awareness of Slooh’s live telescope feeds, and easy search and browse navigation to Slooh’s learning activities. Additional improvements allow educators to easily assign these learning activities to students and monitor their progress. Slooh integrates with popular learning management systems including Schoology, Brightspace, and Google Education.

Slooh, a Washington Depot, CT-based company which specializes in offering live online telescope feeds of the universe and an NGSS-aligned curriculum for school communities, raised nearly $5M in funding. Best wishes to everyone in the group. This will be a huge accomplishment for them in the future.
