About

WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a free, open-source online platform that offers immersive views of the sky and millions of celestial objects. WWT is managed by the American Astronomical Society and makes data from the world's premiere telescopes accessible to classrooms, planetaria, and research institutions.

WWT Ambassadors program is the leading arm of the educational research and development program and is run by a team of astronomers and educators at Harvard University. The Ambassadors program designs, tests, and distributes K-12 and University science curricula that use WWT. We also conduct educational research that aims to develop effective ways to implement the WWT visualization tool in formal and informal learning settings across all age groups and geographical locations.
