How will students benefit?

One of the most wonderful objectives of the Star Chart app is to get children off the couch and outside to explore the world around them. Try taking your class outside to introduce the app. It may be a bright sunny day, but the effect and impact of the app is greatly increased when students can point their device at the sky and picture the stars, planets and systems up above.
