Exploring CTA Science with Ted and Friends
Join Ted the Telescope and his friends Big Bear and Little Bear as they explore the exciting objects in space Ted and his telescope friends will look at as they search the night sky for gamma rays. Each of the seven episodes is about 3-4.5 minutes in length and covers a different topic. Watch the full series on our YouTube channel in English, Spanish or Portuguese . The series was created by Alice Hopkinson, an undergraduate student at Durham University, and is recommended for children ages 5-11, but “big kids” should find it enjoyable, too! Test what you learn from each episode with the accompanying handbook.
